If you like sweet and sour chicken, especially from Fongs in Rexburg, you have to try this recipe. It's so good, and tastes almost like Fongs! I made this for lunch today, and wow! I was so impressed at the flavor!

Sweet and Sour Chicken

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into cubes
1 egg, wisked
1 T extra virgin olive oil
3/4 cup sugar
4 T ketchup
1/2 cup vinegar
1 T soy sauce
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 to 1 1/2 cups orange juice

Dip chicken in egg, then coat chicken evenly in cornstarch. Cook in hot pan with oil until almost done. Wisk together remaining ingredients. Pour onto chicken and stir frequently until sauce thickens. If sauce thickens too much, add more orange juice and stir until desired thickness. Pour over cooked white or fried rice. Feeds 3-4 people.

This recipe cooks up so fast, and it is so delicious. I have never had homemade sweet and sour chicken that tasted this good.
