  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tbs cooking sherry
  • 1 tbs white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup ketchup

Fried Chicken

  • 1 cup cornstarch
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 chicken breast, cubed
  • Oil, enough to generously cover the bottom of a large saucepan
  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. In a medium sized pot combine all the sweet & sour sauce ingredients together and bring to a simmer over medium low heat, stirring occasionally until thickened and the sauce becomes clear.
  3. In a small bowl mix the cubed chicken and cornstarch together ensuring all chicken is evenly coated and whisk the eggs in a separate small bowl.
  4. While the sauce simmers, in a large sauce pan heat oil until a small sprinkle of cornstarch sizzles.
