Sweet and Sour Chicken

2-3 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, cut into chunks
Salt and Pepper
1 cup flour
2 eggs, beaten
Vegetable Oil

3/4 cup sugar
4 tbsp Ketchup
1/2 cup Vinegar
1 tbsp Soy Sauce
1 tsp Garlic Salt

Season chicken with salt and pepper.  Dip in flour, then in egg.  Fry in hot oil until lightly browned on all sides, but not cooked through.  Place in a single layer in a baking dish.
Mix all sauce ingredients together and pour over chicken.
Bake for one hour at 325 degrees F, turning every 15 minutes.
If you like extra sauce, make a second batch on the stovetop.  Bring it to a boil, stirring constantly, and then let cook over medium heat until thickened and reduced, for about 8 minutes.
Serve over rice.

My review:  This was so easy and delicious.  It tasted just like it was from a Chinese restaurant, and all the ingredients were things that I keep in my kitchen at all times.
