Healthy Baked Sweet and Sour Chicken

This week we also had Kellie and Reza over for Dinner on Wednesday so that we could carve our pumpkins.  We didn't plan to wait until the last day before Halloween to carve them but we were both so busy it ended up getting pushed back quite a lot!  This is an amazingly good recipe that is very easy but takes a long time to bake.  Although it isn't the healthiest recipe ever, it is about the healthiest sweet and sour chicken you can get! The sauce is very watery initially but as it bakes it will thicken up.  This is definitely one of our favorite recipes to make with fried rice, or just regular rice!

Baked Sweet and Sour Chicken

3-4 boneless chicken breasts
salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup cornstarch
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup sugar
4 tbsp. ketchup
1/2 cup vinegar
1 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. garlic salt
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Rinse your chicken breasts in water and then cut into cubes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Dip chicken into the cornstarch to coat then dip into the eggs. Heat the 1/4 cup oil in a large skillet and cook your chicken until browned but not cooked through. Place the chicken in a 9x13 greased baking dish. In a small bowl using a whisk mix together, ketchup, vinegar, soy sauce and garlic salt and then pour evenly over the chicken. Bake the chicken in the sauce for one hour turning the chicken every 15 minutes or so.
