Baked Sweet & Sour Chicken

This dinner is excellent.  It takes longer than most of my dishes, but it is WELL worth it.  I love that I have the ingredients on hand almost always, and I love that my kids will yum this down without a fight!  

Servings:  6-8

8-11 chicken breast tenderloins or 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 1/4 cup cornstarch
3 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup oil (I use olive oil but any veggie oil will do)

1 1/2 cup sugar
6 Tbsp. ketchup
1/3 cup white vinegar
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 1/2 tsp. garlic salt

1.  Cut up chicken into small bite size pieces.  Coat them in cornstarch and then dip them in beaten egg.

2.  Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Place the coated chicken in skillet and cook until nicely browned.

3.  Meanwhile, mix together the sauce ingredients--whisking together all the ingredients.

4.  When then chicken is browned, place chicken in a large greased baking dish, 9x13" or 9x15".

5.  Pour the sauce over the chicken and bake in a 325* oven for 55 minutes.

Serve over rice and with your favorite veggie!  Delish!
