Sweet and Sour Chicken

My sister introduced this recipe to me years ago and it has been a family favorite ever since. It's one of those recipes where you will most likely have all the ingredients on hand, so if you're in one of those "oh crap, the kids are starving and I have no idea what to make for dinner" binds, then you can always use this to wow the crowds, er, the hungry pack of wolves gnawing on your ankles. It's quick, easy and delicious enough for even your pickiest of eaters. Not to mention, cheaper, tastier and healthier than take-out. You just can't go wrong with this one!

3-4 cups cooked rice

3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup cornstarch
2 eggs, beaten
vegetable oil (for frying)

¾ cup sugar
1/3 C ketchup
1/3 cup chicken broth
1 ¼ tablespoon soy sauce
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Cut chicken into chunks, season with salt and pepper, dip in cornstarch and egg. Fry in a little oil until lightly browned. Place in a single layer in a baking dish. Mix sauce ingredients together in a separate bowl and pour over chicken. Preheat oven to 350 then cover and cook for 35-40 minutes. Serve over cooked rice.
