Winner Winner Sweet and Sour Chicken Dinner

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

We have a winner for Yoplait Greek's "Nourish Your Inner Goddess" gift pack! Check out the drawing below to see who won!
I saw this Sweet and Sour Chicken recipe on Three On Food's website, it's a great website shared by three women who post their favorite recipes! I was really excited to try this recipe because Andrew LOVES sweet and sour chicken from our local Chinese restaurant. We really liked this dinner, I don't think it tasted exactly like the restaurant version but it was very good! The only negatives are that it's a little time consuming (frying the chicken and then baking it for an hour) and that it's fried. We're all trying to lose weight and we're not going to get there by frying up dinner... literally.
EVERYONE NEEDS TO WATCH JAMIE OLIVER'S FOOD REVOLUTION!! It's on Friday nights, ABC, at 8:00pm (central time)! If you missed the first two episodes they are available online for free! It will make you think twice about the food you feed your family!

Chicken Ingredients
3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Salt and pepper
1 cup cornstarch
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup canola oil

Sauce Ingredients
3/4 cup sugar
4 tablespoons ketchup
1/2 cup vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon garlic salt

Cut boneless chicken breasts into chunks. Season with salt and pepper. Dip chicken in cornstarch and then in egg. Fry in a little oil until brown but not cooked through. Place in a single layer in a baking dish. Mix sauce ingredients together and pour over chicken.
Bake for one hour at 325 degrees. Turn chicken every 15 minutes. If you like extra sauce, make another batch of sauce and bring it to a boil on the stovetop. Stir constantly and let cook over medium heat until thickened and reduced - about 6-8 minutes.
