Baked Sweet and Sour Chicken

Winner Winner chicken dinner! Baked Sweet and Sour Chicken is on the menu tonight! This takes the cake as far as easy homemade Chinese food.

 

Matt and I love our Chinese food. We don’t necessarily like how it makes us feel afterwards. The grease and the richness of the flavor can make you a little sick after you eat it. When I was pregnant the only thing I could eat for a while with out getting sick was PF Changs. It tasted great and wasn’t so greasy as the typical Chinese food.

 

Ingredients

  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts (cubed)
  • 1 1/2 cups cornstarch
  • 3 to 4 eggs
