I love Pinterest for so many reasons. The most important reason I think is being able to “bookmark” in a way, recipes I want to try. It’s great because I can make a board of all these delicious, amazing looking foods that I do plan on making. I’ve actually made a couple so at least I use them, I don’t just drool over the pictures. (By the way, my husband thinks the way I look at pictures of food is equivalent to people looking at porn. I guess in a way it is…well, no it’s not. Not at all actually ew).
This recipe was slightly adapted from Your Home-based Mom. The only thing I changed was substituting flour for cornstarch. Here are the ingredients:
Sweet and Sour Chicken
- 4 (small) chicken breasts or you can use 3
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 cup flour or cornstarch
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 4 tbsp of ketchup
- 1/2 cup vinegar
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tsp garlic salt
First, I cut the chicken up into chunks. Then, dipped the chicken in the flour, then into the eggs. I fried the chicken pieces in oil until they were lightly browned.
While the chicken was cooking, I mixed the sauce together and preheated the oven to 325.
Once the chicken was nice and brown, I spread it out in a baking dish then poured the sauce on top. I baked the chicken for an hour, mixing it around every 15 minutes.
It smells so good!
I served it with brown rice and broccoli. It turned out awesome! I will definitely be making this again!
If you love sweet and sour chicken, you’ll definitely like this. It actually tasted a lot like the classic chinese dish. Maybe next time I’ll add pineapples to it?
Happy Monday everyone!
