Sweet and Sour Chicken

My family & I give this 10 stars!!! It was absolutely delicious. The chicken was crunchy and the sauce was the best sweet and sour sauce I have ever tasted. I don't think I ever heard so many Mmmms at the dinner table.

3-5 boneless skinless chicken breasts
Salt and pepper
1 c cornstarch
2 eggs, beaten
1/3 c oil (I use olive oil but canola is fine)
3/4 c sugar (I only used 1/2 c)
4 tbsp ketchup
1/2 c vinegar
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp garlic salt

Cut chicken into 1 inch cubes. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Dip chicken into cornstarch and coat all the way around. Then dip chicken into eggs. Heat oil in large skillet. Cook chicken until browned on both sides. Place in baking dish.
Whisk sugar, ketchup, vinegar, soy sauce and garlic salt until smooth. Pour sauce evenly over chicken. Turn chicken so the sauce gets on both sides and then put in the oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Turn chicken and then cook for 15 more minutes. I like to serve with rice.

Freezer Cooking Update
Prepare as directed. Add chicken to foil pans and pour sauce on top. Cover and freeze. To serve, thaw and bake as directed. This is so yummy!
