Sweet and Sour Chicken

I swear, this sweet and sour chicken is so much better than going out to a Chinese restaurant. It tastes just like sweet and sour chicken and one of the best parts about it is that the chicken is baked in the oven and not fried. If you love Chinese, this is definitely a recipe that you should try. I found this recipe at Life as a Lofthouse.

3-4  boneless chicken breasts 

1 cup cornstarch 
salt and pepper 
2 eggs, beaten 
olive oil for cooking chicken 

Sweet and Sour sauce 
3/4 cup sugar
4 tablespoons ketchup
1/2 cup vinegar 
1 tablespoon soy sauce 

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  

2. Cut chicken breasts into cubes and season with salt and pepper. Dip chicken into cornstarch and then dip the chicken into the eggs, to coat. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in skillet and cook chicken until browned but not fully cooked. 

3. Place chicken in 9 by 13 greased baking dish. Pour sweet and sour sauce over chicken. Bake for 1 hour, rotating and turning chicken every 15 minutes. Serve with rice.
