Sweet-N-Sour Chicken

This recipe absolutely BLEW me away. 
I've tried to make multiple sweet-n-sour chicken recipes to mimic one that Christopher and I used to LOVE before the restaurant closed. 

This is defiantly the closest I've come to it! There is still some tweaking to do, but MAN it's flippin' delicious!




Ingredients
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • Slap Ya MaMa seasoning, to taste
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 4 large eggs, beaten
  • 3 scoops coconut oil
  • 1 Cup cooked Brown Rice
  • For the sweet and sour sauce
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. 
  • Lightly oil a 9x13 baking dish or coat with nonstick spray (I used Olive Oil Spray).

  • Make the Sauce:
  • Whisk together sugar, vinegar, ketchup, soy sauce and garlic powder in a large bowl.
  • Set aside.

  • In a large bowl, season chicken with salt/pepper & Slap Ya MaMa seasoning, to taste. 
  • Stir in cornstarch with slotted spoon and gently toss to combine. 

  • Heat olive oil in a large saucepan. 
  • Once olive oil is heated, one at a time, dip the chicken into the eggs. and cook until golden brown, about 1-2 minutes. 

  • Transfer chicken to a paper towel-lined plate; discard excess oil.

  • Once all chicken is lightly browned, add chicken to prepared baking dish. 
  • Top with previously mixed sweet and sour sauce. 

  • Place into oven and bake until the sauce has thickened, about 55 minutes, turning over every 15 minutes to evenly coat the chicken.

  • Serve immediately over 1/4 cup brown rice.
