What's Cooking: Sweet & Sour Chicken

Tastes similar to General Tso's Chicken. Serve plain or over rice.

    - 3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    - Salt and pepper
    - 1 cup cornstarch
    - 2 large eggs, beaten
    - 1/4 cup canola oil 
    - 3/4 cup granulated sugar
    - 4 tablespoons ketchup
    - 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
    - 1 tablespoon soy sauce
    - 1 teaspoon garlic salt

Cooking Directions
1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. While the oil is heating, cut the chicken breasts into 1-inch pieces. Season with salt and pepper.
3. Place the cornstarch in a gallon-sized ziploc bag. Put the chicken into the bag with the cornstarch and seal, tossing to coat the chicken.
4. Whisk the eggs together in a shallow pie plate. Dip the cornstarch-coated chicken pieces in the egg and place them carefully in a single layer in the hot skillet.
5. Cook for 1-2 minutes and then flip each piece over to cook on the other side until nicely golden but not all the way cooked through. Place in a single layer in a baking dish and repeat with the remaining chicken pieces.
6. Mix the sauce ingredients together in a medium bowl and pour over the chicken in the baking dish. Bake for one hour, turning the chicken once or twice while cooking to coat evenly with sauce.
