Hot, Sweet, AND Sour Chicken

Jake loves chicken, but hates "Chinese" food. Well, I like both and we both loved this dish. It's super easy (well, unless you're used to "cooking" frozen pizzas). Just fry the chicken quickly, then toss them in the oven with the super quick sauce and wah-lah! Delicious!

3-5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
salt and pepper
1 cup of corn starch
2-3 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup canola oil

1 yellow onion, sliced
1 green bell pepper, sliced

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat canola oil over medium heat. Cut the chicken into small bite-sized cubes and toss into the cornstarch and spice mixture. After coating the chicken, coat in eggs. Cook the chicken for a couple minutes on one side, then flip and drain on paper towels. Place in 9x9 baking dish with vegetables.

1 cup sugar or honey
6 T ketchup
1/2 cup vinegar
2 T soy sauce
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp salt
1 T sesame oil
1 T sambal sauce (or some spicy sauce)

Whisk sauce and pour over chicken. Stir baking dish contents until combined. Bake in oven for 15 minutes, turn chicken, then cook again for another 15 minutes. Serve with rice or greens.
