°1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
°Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
°½ cup cornstarch
°2 large eggs, beaten
°¼ cup vegetable oil
+FOR THE SWEET AND SOUR SAUCE
°¾ cup sugar
°½ cup apple cider vinegar
°¼ cup ketchup
°1 tablespoon of soy sauce
½ teaspoon garlic powder
*How to prepare
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Next, lightly oil a baking dish or coat it with nonstick spray.
To make the sauce, whisk together the sugar, vinegar, ketchup, soy sauce and garlic powder in a large bowl and set aside. Season the chicken with salt and pepper to taste in a large bowl.
Stir in cornstarch and stir gently to combine. One at a time, dip the chicken in the eggs. Then heat the vegetable oil in a large saucepan, add the chicken and cook for about 1-2 minutes or until browned, about 1-2 minutes.
Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel and discard excess oil. Add the chicken to the prepared baking dish, then top with the sweet and sour sauce. Place in the oven and bake until the sauce has thickened, about 55 minutes, turning every 15 minutes to evenly coat the chicken.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
