Ally's Sweet and Savory Eats: Sweet and Sour Chicken

Sweet and Sour Chicken

 
Well, we are gearing down for a winter storm today.  I am so ready for spring, yet I love being snowed in.  Doesn't make much sense does it?  Essentially I love being stuck inside watching the snow fall, with a big pot of homemade soup on the stove, but hate it the minute I have to step out the door.
 
Anyone else with me?
 
And for that big pot of soup?  I'm making this one tomorrow.  It's the husband's favorite and gets rave reviews from all who make it.


You know what else the husband loves?  Sweet and sour chicken.  Anytime I make stir-fry or a Chinese dish, he always asks if I have any sweet and sour sauce in the fridge and I always say no.  I never buy it {you think he'd know that by now}.

So when I saw a version of this recipe, I knew I needed to try it. 

It got pretty darn good reviews.  The only problem was we ate it all in one sitting and there were not any leftovers.  Next time I'll definitely make a double batch.

 
Sweet and Sour Chicken
 
Chicken Breading
3-4 chicken breasts, cut into chunks
1 c. cornstarch
2 eggs
salt/pepper
1/3 c. oil
 
Rinse chicken and cut into 1 inch cubes. season with salt and pepper. Dip chicken into cornstarch and coat all the way and then into eggs. Heat oil in large skillet. Cook chicken until browned. Place in a 9x13 baking dish.
 
Sauce
1/2 c. sugar
4 T. ketchup
1/2 c. white distilled vinegar
1 T. soy sauce
1 t. garlic salt
 
Whisk all ingredients until smooth, then pour 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 cook for 15 more minutes until done.

Let's see....in other news.  Here are some of my Thursday random thoughts.  Enjoy.
 
I'm sad that Downton Abbey Season 3 is over.  How long do I have to wait for Season 4?  And getting rid of Matthew?  Ugh.  Heartbreaking.
 
I'm itching to give my house a deep spring cleaning, but it has to be warm enough that I can open up the windows.  Maybe next month?
 
Everyday this week I know someone who has a birthday.  I'm serious.  Every single day.  It's crazy.
 
The little man and I made chocolate chip banana bread last night.  It's heavenly.  So good, I delivered one loaf to daycare, one to work and only kept one at home!

  1. The ability to personalise the decorations is one of the key elements on
    offer and provides the means to individualise the
    product further. Buy one now from the leading Vaporizer stores online.

    Also they don't need a lighter to light the cigarette.

    I've never seen Downtown Abbey before, but I hate waiting for new seasons of my favourite shows.
