2. Season chicken with salt and pepper.



3. Working in two batches, toss the chicken pieces in cornstarch and then coat with the egg. Heat the oil over medium-high heat and again in two batches, brown the chicken, turning it so that all sides are browned.



4. Place the chicken in a single layer in a 9×13 baking dish.



5. Whisk together the sauce ingredients in a small bowl and pour evenly over the chicken. Turn the chicken to ensure each piece is coated.



6. Bake for 1 hour, turning the chicken every 15 minutes.

Notes

Sweet and sour chicken that will make you think you ordered take out!

Looks great and easy to make on a rainy or cold day. Just add carrotts, green peppers and a few other things. Rice of course. Got to try this.

looks so yummy! gotta try it :)

Great dish! I added quartered white onions at the last 20 minutes as well as chili sauce to the main sauce which satisfied my hungry crowd.
