Sweet & Sour Chicken: Mels Kitchen Cafe

Ok…this was pretty dang good.  Ernie said it’s a keeper so I’m putting in on here.  The only downfall is it is a little time consuming (about 1 hr) so be aware when you make this.  I wasn’t quite aware so my little guy had a sandwich for dinner instead of eating because he was too hungry.  It was well worth the wait.  Here’s the link to where I got it.  Funny it’s called Melskitchencafe.

*Note: if you like extra sauce, double the sauce ingredients – pour half over the chicken and follow the baking directions in the recipe and pour the other half in a small saucepan. Cook the sauce on the stovetop at a simmer for 8-10 minutes until it reduces and thickens. Serve it on the side of the chicken.

*Serves 4-6

3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Salt and pepper
1 cup cornstarch
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup canola oil

Cut boneless chicken breasts into chunks. Season with salt and pepper. Dip chicken in cornstarch and then in egg. Fry in a little oil until brown but not cooked through. Place in a single layer in a baking dish. Mix sauce ingredients (below) together and pour over chicken.

¾ cup sugar
4 tablespoons ketchup
½ cup vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon garlic salt

Bake for one hour at 325 degrees. Turn chicken every 15 minutes so it is evenly coated with the sauce. Serve over rice.
