What's for Dinner? Sweet and Spicy Chicken #Recipe

Since we moved down south we’ve had a difficult time finding Chinese food that holds up to our standards. About two years ago we finally found a place we enjoyed; unfortunately it’s about 30 minutes away. This weekend we we’ve been doing a little “fall” cleaning and didn’t have time to travel for the sweet and sour chicken my kids were craving, so I figured I whip them up some for dinner myself, not realizing I was missing some important ingredients. Lucky for them, mom got another idea; a dish we hadn’t had in months and I had all the ingredients.


Sweet & Spicy Chicken



Sweet & Spicy Chicken #Recipe


Ingredients:
  • 5 Thick cut, boneless skinless chicken breast
  • Flour or cornstarch for coating
  • 3 eggs beaten
  • 1/3 cup oil
Sauce:
 
  • 1/2 cup hot sauce
  • 1 ½ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. water
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder

- Cut chicken into chunks. In a medium size bowl beat eggs; dip chicken in egg, dredge through cornstarch.

- In large sauté pan heat oil over medium high heat and brown coated chicken; transfer browned chicken to baking dish.

- Pre-heat oven to 350.

- In large bowl combine ingredients for sauce and mix thoroughly. Pour sauce over chicken, placing in oven for about 1 hour, stirring at the 30 minute mark to make sure all chicken pieces are coated in sauce.

What do you mean by "hot sauce"? Here in Texas, that generally means salsa, but I know that's not what you use. Can you please tell us what the sauce is? It looks so yummy and I want to make it!
