Easy Sweet and Sour Chicken

This sweet and sour chicken has been the most popular recipe on my blog since I posted it when I first started blogging! It was actually one of the reasons I started this food blog. I had posted food pictures on my personal social media and had people ask me over and over again for different recipes. So I decided to start posting recipes and pictures and have been doing my food blog ever since! 

So when I was approached by my childhood neighbor (who has a great YouTube channel here) to film my 1st YouTube video I knew exactly what recipe to do! And of course it was this one! So I hope you enjoy this video as much as I enjoyed making it! So make sure you watch it below and subscribe to my YouTube channel for more videos of recipes and tips and tricks!






Easy Sweet and Sour Chicken

Chicken Breading:
3-5 chicken breast
salt and pepper
1 cup cornstarch
eggs, beaten
1/3 cup canola oil


optional:
bell peppers, cut into 1 inch squares
fresh pineapple, cut into 1 inch squares
white onion, cut into 1 inch squares



Rinse chicken, trim off fat or extras and then 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 baking dish. 3 chicken breasts can be in a 9x9 but 5 chicken breasts fits better in a 9x13. Then place the optional fruit and veggies. Then make the sauce and pour it over the entire thing.



Sauce:
3/4 cups white sugar
4 Tablespoons ketchup

1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon garlic salt



Whisk 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 then cook for 15 more minutes.
