Sweet and Sour Chicken

We make this delicious chicken dish often.  We hope you enjoy it as much as we have! 

3 lbs chicken breast (boneless)
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Sprinkle garlic salt and pepper on the chicken and let soak for 1 hour.  *When I'm in a hurry, which is often, I soak it for 10 minutes and it turns out fine.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Dip each chicken breast in egg and then cover with flour. Fry lightly and briefly (about 30 seconds) in oil. Place in 13x9 casserole dish. 

3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 cup chicken stock
3 1/2 Tablespoons catsup
1 Tablespoon soy sauce

Mix ingredients and heat in a pot, stirring occasionally.  Pour over chicken in casserole dish.  Cook at 325 degrees for about 45 minutes.  The original recipe said to cook for 1 hour, but we often only do about 30 minutes. It all depends on the oven.  We like to serve it over rice and with a side of veggies and/or green salad.
