Sweet & Sour Chicken

Sweet & Sour Chicken
From: My Grandma Ward

4-8 chicken breasts, boneless skinless
1 egg, beaten

¾ cup sugar
1 tsp soy sauce
4 TBL ketchup
½ tsp garlic powder
½ cup vinegar

Dip chicken breast into egg, then roll in cornstarch. In a small amount of oil, fry chicken until just browned. Place chicken in a shallow baking pan. Pour the sauce over it, then bake, uncovered at 325 degrees for one hour, turning chicken every 15 minutes. Serve with rice.

Another recipe for Sweet & Sour Chicken (it has a bit different taste than the other recipe...but I like both :)
From: My friend, Nicole

2-3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into 1" square pieces
1 T oil
1 C red & green peppers or more if you like (I usually add onions, too)
2 T corn starch
1/4 C soy sauce
1 can chunk pineapple in juice
3 T vinegar
3 T brown sugar
1/2 t grated ginger
1/2 t garlic

Cook and stir chicken in hot oil until browned. Add peppers and cook 1-2 minutes until crisp, tender. Remove from pan and set aside.

Mix cornstarch, soy sauce, pineapple juice, vinegar, sugar, ginger, and garlic. Add to pan and bring to boil. Then add meat, vegetables, and pineapple and heat through. Serve over rice.
