Sweet N Sour Chicks (Sweet N Sour Chicken) and Stir Fried Rice


Sweet N Sour Sauce:
1c powdered sugar (Confectioners’ sugar)
4 TBSP Ketchup
1/2 cup White Distilled Vinegar
1 TBSP Soy Sauce
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1/8 tsp Sea Salt
***TO ADD SPICINESS, which we LOVE this version:
1 tsp Sriracha Sauce (Other hot sauces may alter taste)
1/4 to 1/2 tsp Hot Red Pepper Flakes

Batter Mixture:
1 cup cornstarch
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
Up to 1/4 tsp Course Black Pepper
Good pinch of Sea Salt
1/2 tsp Onion Powder
1/2 tsp Paprika

4 Chicken Breasts
2 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup vegetable oil

Preheat oven 350. Cut chicken into 1 inch cubes. Pour the starch over the chicken and toss til coated, I’m not pretty about it. Then I Distribute eggs over battered chicken. I find this easier than dipping them into the egg and losing most batter on my fingers.
Heat oil in large skillet. Cook chicken until browned on each side. Place in baking dish.
Mix ingredients of sauce. Whisk until smooth (I make earlier, let flavors combine some.). Pour evenly over chicken.
Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Turn chicken, bake for 15 more minutes.

Stir Fried Rice:
4 cups Rice, already prepared and cooked. Instead of water, use chicken broth to cook rice with! Broth cubes works.
½lb. boneless, no skin Chicken Breasts, cooked. Or shrimp, cooked. Or both. I just boil chicken. Or cook shrimp in pan. Or leave out as we did in photo.

2 cloves Garlic, minced
1/2 cup to 3/4 cup Onion, chopped
3/4 to 1 cup Carrots
3/4 to 1 cup Peas
2 Eggs

Heat sesame oil on medium heat. Add onion, garlic, peas, carrots. Stir fry until tender. Scramble eggs, mixing throughout vegetables. Add rice, chicken/shrimp, and soy sauce to pan. Stir in soy sauce and remove from heat. Drizzle 1/8 tsp Sesame oil over (Optional).
Mix. Serve
