Sweet and Sour Chicken or Meatballs

We are big fan's of chicken over rice dishes, this one is my husband's favorite, it's the best I've ever had too. I got this recipe from an old friend, enjoy!

Chicken:
3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Salt and pepper
1 cup cornstarch
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup canola oil

Cut boneless chicken breasts into chunks. Season with salt and pepper. Dip chicken in cornstarch and then in egg. Fry in a little oil until brown but not cooked through. Place in a single layer in a baking dish.
Mix sauce ingredients (below) together and pour over chicken.

Sauce:
¾ cup sugar
4 tablespoons ketchup
½ cup vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon garlic salt - 1-2 cloves of sauteed garlic and 3/4 tsp regular salt works well too

Bake for one hour at 325 degrees. Turn chicken every 15 minutes. If you like extra sauce, make another batch of sauce and bring it to a boil on the stovetop. Stir constantly and let cook over medium heat until thickened and reduced - about 6-8 minutes.

Another Sweet and Sour sauce I love, this is spicy and sweet, stovetop only.

1/2 cup Heinz Spicey Ketchup
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups pineapple juice
2 tsp salt
4 T cornstarch
3/4 c water
Heat all ingredients through until thickened

Or if you don't have spicy ketchup and want it less sweet and more sour:
You can put this sauce over meatballs and rice; it's awesome!
