Why I Love This Recipe

As a kid my mom would make this for our "family picnics" .. I have children of my own now, and have asked for this recipe for over 10 years! She couldn't find it! I had searched the web, but there isn't a Recipe Like Hers! It was just never the 'same' ... well, she finally found it for me! I made this chicken yesterday, and served it HOT. It was wonderful! And the leftover 'cold chicken' is just as I remembered! Thanks Mom!!! I Love Your Sticky Chicken, and now my kids can too!

Ingredients You'll Need

3 lb. chicken (wings or white fryer cut up)
garlic salt (or Lowry's Seasoning)
1-2 eggs, beaten well
2 cups cornstartch
Grease (for frying the chicken)

1 c sugar
1/2 c vinegar
1/4 c water
4 T Ketchup
1 T Soy Sauce (Kikkoman)
1 T HOT Sauce


Sprinkle/Rub chicken with garlic salt/Lowry's

Leave for 1/2 to 1 hour (optional)

Roll chicken in egg, beaten well, then roll in cornstartch until completely covered

Fry in hot fat and drain

(tip: When Frying Chicken; NEVER FLIP or TURN the Chicken until the crust looks 'perfect' .. when the crust looks like it is 'done' then flip/turn to continue frying the chicken)

Place chicken close together in 9x13 pan (line pan with foil for easier cleanup)

Pour sauce over chicken. Then with a spoon continue to poor/drizzle the extra sauce over the chicken. Try to make sure every piece has been covered with sauce.

Bake @ 350 for 40-50 minutes, turning over once during cooking.

(Baste Every 10 Minutes)

*** I was worried that Frying the Chicken, and then Baking it for an hour would Dry out my Chicken; but I didn't Fry my chicken "completely" ... I made sure the crust looked 'perfect' on all sides. But I knew that the chicken was probably pink inside. Then moved it over to the 9x13 ... I made sure the chicken was touching each other to prevent any 'dryness' ... And I basted every 10 minutes! That is the most important step; in my opinion.

*** You can move the chicken to a crockpot, and keep on Warm/Low for 3 - 4 hours! It will be a Favorite, I promise!
