Baked Sweet and Sour Chicken

Here's another chicken recipe, since its been a week or two since I gave you one. This is a recipe I tried not that long ago and it was delicious. Much fresher tasting then deep fried but similar flavour and maybe? a few less calories.
It all starts with boneless, skinless chicken, lightly battered, then simmered in a tasty sauce in the oven.
Fry it up and put it in a 9 x 13 baking dish....
Mix up sauce and pour over chicken.......
Doesn't that look yummy?

Baked Sweet and Sour Chicken
3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 cups cornstarch
3 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup canola oil

Sweet and Sour Sauce
1 cup white sugar
4 Tablespoons Ketchup
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar  ( I thought the vinegar should be slightly reduced)
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. garlic salt

Cut chicken into bite-sized pieces and season with salt and pepper. Place cornstarch and eggs in separate bowls. Dip chicken in cornstarch, then in egg and brown in skillet with canola oil.
Place chicken in 9 x 13 baking dish. In a medium bowl, mix together sauce ingredients and pour over chicken. Bake ONE hour at 325 F.
