Do you ever wish you could make a meal that tasted just like the restaurant version or even better? Well here’s your chance! I came across this recipe for sweet and sour chicken a few months ago and couldn’t believe how good it was. I don’t usually order sweet and sour chicken at restaurants because it’s heavily fried with very little chicken. Well, this recipe has lots of chicken, a little fried, and plenty of yummy sweet and sour sauce! You should feel very special that I’m about to share it with you 😉

Sweet and Sour Chicken

  • 3 lbs. chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1 tsp. garlic salt
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 black pepper
  • 3 1/2 Tbs. ketchup
  • 1 whole beaten egg
  • 1 Tbs. soy sauce
  • cornstarch
  • 2-3 Tbs. pineapple juice
  • 3/4 cup white sugar

Dice the raw chicken and sprinkle with garlic salt and pepper. Put in the fridge for 15 minutes.

Dip chicken pieces in egg and coat with cornstarch. Brown in hot oil until the coating holds together. Place in glass baking dish and cover with the sauce. Bake uncovered for 45 minutes at 365 degrees. Stir once halfway through.

Sweet and Sour Sauce

Combine sugar, vinegar, chicken broth, ketchup, and soy sauce. Heat in saucepan. Add cornstarch dissolved in cold water gradually until sauce thickens. Add pineapple juice to sweeten. Pour sauce over chicken. The sauce will smell strongly of vinegar but no worries, it won’t come out that way!!

Mmmm can’t you just taste it!
