Tonights Menu - Sweet & Sour Chicken

I am very pleased to give you an AMAZING recipe that my dear friend Brandie gave me! I will go ahead and give the ingredients as I'm explaining dinner and the photos...

First off, I halved the recipe but probably could have made the whole thing!

It starts with 3 lbs of chicken tenderloins coated in:
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
I just put the chicken in a bag and shook it up until they were all coated.

Then beat 2 eggs. Dip the coated chicken in the eggs and brown them in oil on the stove.
They should look golden brown as shown...

While you are browning the chicken go ahead and mix this sauce over heat until it's dissolved:
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup catchup
1 tbsp soy sauce
1/4 tsp salt
When the chicken is golden brown pour the sauce mix over the chicken on a cookie sheet...
Bake at 350 * for 30 minutes. But don't forget to preheat!! Kyle and I had the chicken all ready and it had to sit for 5 or so minutes until the oven was heated.

While the yummyness was cooking I started making veggies and rice in my amazing steamer that I believe Ian and I got from David and Anna for our wedding! Thanks you two!

I made about 2 cups of rice.. which was double the amount I should have made for halving this recipe.
Then the chicken was done! Yum!

I put the rice in bowls and topped it with the chicken....

then added on the veggies....
It looks so pretty and is super de duper de yummy!!!

I believe the recipe is JUST for Sweet & Sour Chicken. So... Kyle cut the chicken into smaller pieces. We obviously added in the rice and veggies as well. IF you do this, you MIGHT want to consider making a tad more sauce to pour on the rice. I will totally keep that in mind for next time! If you don't, no worries. It was still fabulous!
