Sweet -N -Sour Chicken 


Tonight I was feeling ambitious. Not only did I make the chicken, the rice and my first try at making crab rangoons that I so miss from New Jersey.

Anyway back to the chicken. This recipe has quite a few steps but so worth it in the end.

Ingredients


3 lbs of Chicken Breast or Tenderloins 

Garlic salt

4 eggs 

1 cup of corn starch 

Sauce

6 tablespoons of Ketchup

1-1/2 tablespoons of Soy Sauce 

1 cup of White Sugar

3/4 cup of Apple Cidee Vinager 

Oil for pan or deep frying 

Tools needed

1 small sauce pan

1 Cookie sheet 

1 spatula 

2 deep bowls 

Cutting board

Knife 

Deep Fryer or deep pan 

Oven 

Directions 

Cube chicken in 1 to 1/2 inch pieces. ( They can be bigger just adjust cooking time) Add garlic salt to taste to the chicken.


In a bowl beat 2 of the four eggs and in the other bowl put the corn starch and add a little more garlic salt and mix.


Put the pieces of chicken in the corn starch first and shake off the excess. Then dip in eggs and put to the side until you are ready to fry.


Fry the chicken for 4-5 minutes in the deep fryer or pan fry in 2 inches of oil until both sides are golden brown.


To make the sauce

Mix sugar, soy sauce, ketchup, and vinager together in the small sauce pan and bring to a boil stirring constantly. The sauce will thicken and it will be ready to spread on the chicken.



In your oven heated to 350 degree f, put the chicken in the oven and cook for 15 minutes and turn and cook for an additional 15 minutes or until the sauce thickens on the chicken.


Serve with some rice and what ever side…. 

Deliciousness ! 

Enjoy !
