Sweet and Sour Chicken

This recipe is a little time consuming but so worth it!  It's delicious, and my kind of comfort food.  I think my favorite part is that I usually have all the ingredients in my kitchen without having to make another trip to the grocery store. Try this!  It'll be worth your time.

Sweet and Sour Chicken
1 large chicken breast, cut into 2-inch pieces 
2 Tbsp. oil
1 can pineapple chunks (use for juice as well)
Garlic Mixture
1 tsp. garlic salt
1/2 cup corn starch
Egg Mixture
1 beaten egg
1/8 cup water
Sauce:
1/2 cup sugar     
1/4 cup vinegar
1/2 cup pineapple juice   
3 Tbsp. ketchup
1 Tbsp. soy sauce    
1/2 tsp. salt

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Combine all sauce ingredients, whisk, and set aside.
3. Dip chicken in egg and water mixture then dip into cornstarch and garlic mixture.
4. Fry in oil until browned on both sides.
5. Place chicken and pineapple chunks on a baking sheet and cover with sauce.
6. Bake for 20 minutes, turning halfway through.
7. Serve with rice (I usually make about 2 cups worth.)
