From "365 Ways to Cook Chicken". I used boneless skinless chicken breast cut into cubes, and served it over rice. The sauce is delicious poured over the rice.

This is my favorite way to make chicken! I have the same cookbook and stumbled across this recipe myself. I usually used chicken thighs and the dish always turns out great.

  1. In a large frying pan, heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken and cook, turning, until golden brown, about 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine onion, ketchup, lemon juice, soy sauce, sugar, pepper, and 1/2 water; blend well.
  3. Pour sweet-and-sour mixture over chicken. Cover, reduce heat to low, and cook 20 minutes, until tender. Remove chicken to a serving platter.
  4. Add cornstarch mixture to sauce. Raise heat, bring to a boil, and cook, stirring, until sauce thickens, about 2 minutes. Pour over chicken and garnish with lemon slices.
