Baked Sweet and Sour Chicken

We looooove Chinese food in this house.  Love, love, love!  When I came across this recipe on pinterest awhile back, I just knew we would be trying it.  Much to my pleasure it was pretty easy to make and soooo yummy!  It honestly tastes like the real-deal Chinese restaurant Sweet and Sour Chicken.  I promise, you won't be disappointed with this one!

The original recipe came from Six Sister's Stuff blog.  There are a few more from their site that I've pinned on pinterest and can't wait to try! (Have I mentioned before how much I loooove pinterest?! lol)

Baked Sweet and Sour Chicken

3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup corn starch
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup canola oil

Sweet and Sour Sauce:
3/4 cup sugar
4 tbsp ketchup
1/2 cup vinegar
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp garlic salt

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  

Rinse your chicken breasts in cold water and then cut into cubes.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Dip chicken into cornstarch to coat and then dip into the eggs.  

Heat your 1/4 cup oil in a large skillet and cook your chicken until browned, but not cooked through.  (At this point, you will totally have that yummy Chinese restaurant chicken smell in your kitchen, minus the sweet and sour sauce, of course)

Place the chicken in a 9x13 greased baking dish.

Mix all of your sweet and sour sauce ingredients in a bowl with a whisk and then pour evenly over the chicken.

(Note: The sweet and sour sauce will be very runny at first.  Fret not, it will thicken up the longer it cooks!)

Bake for one hour.  During the baking process, you will need to turn the chicken every 15 minutes.
