I love this recipe. It is simple to prepare, but takes a while in the oven.
There are four parts...the chicken, sauce, rice, and vegetables.
Sauce:1 1/2 C sugar
1/2 C chicken broth or pineapple juice or water
2 TBSP soy sauce
6-8 TBSP ketchup
1 C vinegar
pineapple chunks (optional)
Mix all ingredients together in a medium bowl.
Add pineapple chunks if desired!
Set aside until chicken is ready.
2 large chicken breasts cut into bite-sized pieces
corn starch or flour
Mix the egg and a pinch or two of garlic salt.
Baste each piece of chicken in the egg mixture and cover in corn starch.
Fry in a couple TBSP of oil for 1-2 minutes on each side.
Put the chicken in a baking dish.
Cover with sauce (recipe above).
Bake for 50 minutes at 350 degrees.
Serve with rice and vegetables.
For vegetables, I made a simple green pepper and onion mix sauteed in soy sauce. The green pepper added an amazing, complementary sweet flavor to the sour of the pineapple. I highly recommend it!
When the chicken and veggies are done, pile them high on top of some white rice and enjoy.
