Sweet and Sour Chicken

Sweet and Sour  Chicken created by Lori Mama

This chicken reminds me of sesame chicken from the local Chinese restaurant, only made with a sweet and sour sauce instead of sesame sauce. You may want to double the sauce for extra sauce for dipping or to put on rice.

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Cut chicken breasts into strips or chunks. (Chunks will make the chicken more saucy.).

  • Mix cornstarch, salt, pepper, MSG, and/or any desired seasonings in a bowl to coat chicken.
  • Dip chicken pieces in egg mixture and coat with flour mixture.
  • Deep fry chicken until breading is crisp. (Do not worry if insides are still pink.).
  • Mix sauce ingredients in a medium-sized baking dish. (Double sauce ingredients if you want extra sauce for dipping.).
  • Place chicken in baking dish with sauce and bake for about 45 minutes, turning occasionally.
  • For dipping sauce, mix 2 teaspoons water and 2 teaspoons cornstarch and add to sauce. Heat in a saucepan, stirring, until sauce is thickened.

    Very tasty! I pan fried the chicken rather than deep frying and it came out very nice. Next time I will add a can of pineapple chunks and maybe a green or red pepper.

    This is mighty tasty chicken and the sauce is excellent according to my son. I didn't want to drag out my deep fryer, so I just shallow fried and I also only baked the chicken for 30 min. The sauce was a bit runny still, so I thickened it with the suggested cornstarch slurry. :)
