Simple Sweet & Sour Chicken

This was one of our missionary-inspired recipes: Elder Terry asked us to make his mom’s amazing Sweet & Sour Chicken, and Vicki was kind enough to share the recipe with us. It takes some math, as she uses a basic “per hungry person” algorithm, so you’ll need to multiply these ingredients by the number of people you’ll be feeding – it will make generous portions.

3/4 c sugar
1/2 c white vinegar
1/4 c ketchup
1 tsp soy sauce
a little grated fresh ginger (optional)
~8 oz fresh or thawed chicken breast, sliced into filets
garlic salt, cornstarch, beaten eggs & vegetable oil (for frying the chicken)

Add 1-2 Tbsp of vegetable oil to a skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle chicken slices with garlic salt, dip in beaten egg, then cover in corn starch. Add to skillet and pan fry until chicken is golden brown on all sides.

Meanwhile, pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix sugar, vinegar, ketchup, soy sauce, and ginger together until smooth. Place fried chicken in a baking dish, cover with sauce, and bake for 45-50 minutes. Serve over rice.

Yield: 1 large serving per batch

Time to make: 60-75 minutes
