I’m always on the lookout for new recipes. Especially ones that I will actually eat. I look for flavour, ease of preparing the recipe, and the ingredients involved.

A couple months ago I found this recipe for sweet and sour chicken on Pinterest , claiming to be the best recipe for it. The Pinterest link, lead me back to SmellWhatsCooking.Com where you can find lots of amazing recipes!

After carefully scrutinizing the recipe, I decided to give it a try. It seemed easy enough!

Chicken Coating:
3-5 chicken breast
salt and pepper
1 cup flour (original recipe said cornstarch but I didn’t have any on hand, so I used flour instead)
2 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup canola oil


3/4 cup sugar
4 tbsp ketchup

1/2 cup white  vinegar

1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp garlic salt

Let’s get started!

First I rinsed the chicken off with cold water and chopped it into bite size pieces.

Then I got my flour and eggs into their bowls.

First I dipped the chicken bites into the flour then into the egg and back into the flour for a good coating.

I place the pieces on a tray until I have enough ready to fry.

Then in a fry pan I heat up the oil and place the pieces into the pan. I fry them, turning often, until they are golden brown in color.IMG_20140930_130929

While they are cooking I prepare the sauce.


After they have become golden, I scoop them out, place in a glass dish and cover with sauce. I give them a light toss to get coated.


Then put in the oven and bake @350 degrees for 40 minutes.


Remove and serve over rice or pasta.

This is also just as good warmed up the next day! I’m not big on reheating leftovers, but, this is one time I make an exception!!

Give it a try and please come back and let me know if you liked it as much as I did!
