    Becky in Southeastern, Mass's Note:

    My mom used to make this when I was younger -- it was always a family favorite. Now, I make it for my boyfriend; he enjoys it better than the Chinese Restaurant versions. Be sure to season the chicken overnight -- it gives the chicken all its flavor.

      Chicken and batter recipe were outstanding. The sweet and sour recipe was a little too sweet. Next time I will use about half a jar of cherry juice (I didn't put any actual cherries in the sauce).
