Tasty Tuesdays- Sweet and Sour Chicken



This is easily my favorite dish that my mother-in-law makes. I have never made it before because I always thought it was really hard. When I finally braved it, I found it wasn't hard at all. In fact, it is super easy! This meal is easiest made in an electric skillet.


Chicken Ingredients :


  • 2- 3 lbs of chicken
  • cornstarch
  • 3 eggs

Cut chicken into pieces. Make a bowl of cornstarch and add a little bit of garlic salt. Make a bowl of the eggs whisked. Dips the chicken into the eggs and then into the cornstarch. Put in at pan at 375 , pretty hot with oil. Brown in sections, set aside on paper towel. Add oil each time each time you add a new batch.

Sauce:

  • 3 cups of sugar
  • 1 ½ c. vinegar
  • 1 ½ c. chicken broth (or water and a bouillon cube)
  • 3 tbs ketchup
  • 3 tbs soy sauce
  • 3 teaspoons garlic salt


Combine all the ingredients and simmer 5-10 minutes. Turn down the electric skillet with the chicken in it to 240. Pour liquid in with the chicken. Stir in thickening of 2-3 tablespoons cornstarch with water, then stir in pan.(In a thickening all you do is add the right amount of cornstarch and then add enough water to make a small paste. This will help thicken your sauce up.)

Super easy and yummy. This dish also reheats really well, so make extras and have leftovers!
