You’re gonna back after all

Sweet and Sour Chicken

‘m deep in the throes of the holidays and baking. We’re also incredibly busy at work so I have to fit everything in after my day job. Normally at this time of year, because of the time crunch, I virtually live on takeout or eating out with friends out of both sociability and sheer survival.

But I did manage to fit in making this quick and easy sweet and sour chicken recipe from Mel’s Kitchen Cafe. It’s very similar to one I’ve made in the past in terms of ingredients and preparation so it was no surprise that it also tasted the same. I like both versions. Served over brown rice, it’s perfect for the times I’m too busy to do more than throw something in the microwave for lunch or dinner and eat on the run. (Um, that would be every day between Thanksgiving and Christmas.)

You’ll Need :

3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Salt and pepper
1 cup cornstarch
2 large eggs, beaten
1/4 cup canola oil

3/4 cup granulated sugar
4 tablespoons ketchup
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon garlic salt
