Baked Sweet and Sour Chicken

I love Chinese food...especially the sweet and sour chicken with rice. This recipe tastes just like it - but it is baked, not deep fried. Yay! It is so need to try this one!

Baked Sweet and Sour Chicken
  • 3-4 boneless chicken breasts, cubed
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 cup cornstarch
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 Tbsp ketchup
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Rinse chicken in water, pat dry and cut into cubes. Season with salt and pepper. Coat chicken with cornstarch, then dip into the eggs. Heat oil in a large skillet and cook chicken until browned but not cooked through. Place chicken in 9x13 greased pan. Mix all of the sauce ingredients and pour over the chicken. Bake for one hour, stirring every 15 minutes.

Why I LOVE Dessert

When you're stressed
you eat ice cream, chocolate and sweets.
You know why?
Because "stressed" spelled backwards
is "desserts".

Crazy Good

AAHHHHHHH! Life is CrAzY with 5 kids! Some days I wonder if I will even have time to breathe....but life is good, in fact it is great! Here are some of our newest triumphs:

Kaylee and Aaron have started school and they come home excited about the things that they are doing in their classes...Hooray for great teachers!
 Nathan has started preschool twice a week...Hooray for a much needed break for both of us.
Megan is sleeping through the night...Hooray for sleep!
 And she keeps getting cuter and chubbier by the second...Hooray for kissy cheeks.
Travis keeps me running with a few cuddles in between...Hooray for more energy to keep up with him!

Hooray for a crazy good life!
