Sweet and Sour Chicken

This recipe was found on My Kitchen Cafe and was SOOO good!!! I thought I may have done something wrong when I first browned the chicken because they seemed very "eggy" but they turned out wonderfully. They had a great flavor and a great consistency. I served it over rice with broccoli sauteed in olive oil, garlic and crushed red pepper on the side. DELISH!

3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Salt and pepper
1 cup cornstarch
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup canola oil

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 cup sugar
4 tablespoons ketchup
½ cup vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon garlic salt

Bake for one hour at 325 degrees. Turn chicken every 15 minutes. If you like extra sauce, make another batch of sauce and bring it to a boil on the stovetop. Stir constantly and let cook over medium heat until thickened and reduced - about 6-8 minutes.
