Sweet and Sour Chicken (Aimee)

* 6-8 Skinless, Boneless chicken breast halves (cut into 1 inch cubes)
* Vegetable Oil
* 2 Eggs
* 1 cup Flour
* 3/4 cup Sugar
* 1/2 cup Pineapple Juice
* 1 20 oz. can Pineapple Chunks
* 1/4 cup White Vinegar
* 3/4 cup Ketchup
* 1 1/2 tsp salt
* 1 T Soy Sauce
(1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
(2) Sprinkle chicken breasts with garlic salt.
(3) In a frying pan on high heat, add 1/2-inch vegetable oil. In a bowl, beat 2 eggs. Place flour in a shallow bowl. Dunk pieces of chicken in the egg, and allow excess to drain. Dredge the chicken pieces in the flour coating thoroughly. Drop pieces into the hot oil and cook until deep golden brown. Turn as necessary to cook evenly on all sides.
(4) While chicken is cooking, combine the following in a saucepan over medium-low heat: sugar, pineapple juice, white vinegar, ketchup, salt and soy sauce. Stir mixture occasionally until it comes to a low boil and then reduce heat just enough to keep the sauce warm.
(5) Place cooked chicken pieces and pineapple chunks in a 9×13 pan. Pour warm sweet and sour sauce over the top.
(6) Bake in oven for 30-45 minutes, and serve over rice or egg noodles.

This was sooooooooooooo awesome, we had it last Thursday and are having it again this week. Soooo good!! I couldn't think of anything to add to it to make it better! We served with jasmine rice and steamed brocolli, but I am sure it would be awesome over fried rice. The sauce is awesome! I found it on Hip2save :-)
