sweet n' sour chicken

i really have to admit that this was the best dinner i have made in a long time!! these were soooo good! i found this on senora espanola's blog, and i am so glad i did! we didnt even have any for leftover's! i served over hot cooked basmati rice. this was even better than the restaurant version...we will be making this again for sure;)

makes 4 servings

~3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (i used 4 thin sliced, approx. 1lb)
~Salt and pepper
~1 c. cornstarch for dredging
~2 eggs, beaten
~1/4 c. canola oil (i used vegetable oil because it was all we had)

cut boneless chicken breasts into chunks. season with salt and pepper. dip chicken in cornstarch and then in egg. fry in a little oil until brown but not cooked through. place in a single layer in a baking dish. mix sauce ingredients (below) together and pour over chicken.

~¾ c. granulated sugar
~4 tbsp. ketchup
~½ c. vinegar
~1 tbsp. soy sauce (i used light soy sauce)
~1 tsp. garlic salt (i used garlic powder)

bake for one hour at 325 degrees. turn chicken every 15 minutes. serve over hot cooked rice, or eat alone...enjoy ;)
