  • Season chicken with salt and pepper.
  • Working in two batches, toss the chicken pieces in cornstarch and then coat with the egg.
  • Heat the oil over medium-high heat and again in two batches, brown the chicken, turning it so that all sides are browned but not cooked through.
  • Place the chicken in a single layer in a foil lined 9x13 inch baking dish.
  • Wisk together the sauce ingredients in a small bowl.
  • Pour sauce evenly over the chicken and turn the chicken to ensure each piece is coated.

    Love this chicken. I serve with steamed broccoli and fried rice. I have made this recipe twice as printed and just made again but decided to not bread and fry the chicken to save time and a few calories. Baking without frying turned out great, I did thicken the sauce with some cornstarch. It was delicious and easy.

    I usually try a recipe as-is first, but this one I tweaked a little. I eliminated the salt and pepper; did half brown and half white sugar; used low-sodium soy sauce; added pineapple chunks and used the juice from the pineapples. Served with rice. This recipe is a total hit! I served almost 30 children, almost all had seconds and some had thirds! Even the pickiest in the bunch had seconds! The only thing I'd do differently next time is add some vegetables, such as steamed broccoli, peas, carrots, peppers. This was yummy and is a definite repeat for our school's hot lunch program!

    Yum! Saw this online and made for dinner last night. The whole family enjoyed the dish. It really wasn't much work and sure beat frying. Used four chicken breasts and garlic salt instead of garlic powder in the sauce. Served with simple fried rice and some frozen egg rolls. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    This truly is my husbands favorite meal of all. In fact, we don't go out for Chinese anymore because of this recipe! It's delicious and best of all uses ingredients most people have in their pantry. One thing I will say is yes, it is a bit of work but ALL worth it! Also, you will use more than 2 eggs. Unless the eggs used for the original recipe were Ostrich eggs, then you will use closer to 4 or even 5 but again, worth every ingredient. Thanks for posting this wonderful recipe!
