Gluten Free Sweet and Sour Chicken

My whole family loves Sweet and Sour Chicken. It is something I made often before I went gluten free and It was honestly really easy to convert to a gluten-free recipe. It is so good, you will question whether or not it really is gluten-free

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.


  • 3 cups of sugar
  • 1 ½ c. vinegar
  • 1 ½ c. water
  • 1 teaspoon boullion ( I use Better Than Boullion) 
  • 3 tbs ketchup
  • 3 tbs soy sauce (Gluten Free) 
  • 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.)

This is probably one the the easiest Gluten Free Dishes I make and it reheats so well! This dish also reheats really well, so make extras and have leftovers!
