    Sweet and Sour Chicken

    List of Ingredients

    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup cornstarch
    2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp msg
    1 tsp baking powder
    1 cup water
    2 tsp vegetable oil
    1 lb chicken breast, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
    1 large green pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
    3 cups hot cooked rice

    Pour oil into a deep frying pan to a depth of 1 to 1.5 inches.
    Heat to 375 degrees, or until a 1-inch bread cube browns in 1
    minute. (A deep fryer also works well.) While oil heats, prepare
    sweet-and-sour sauce.

    In a small bowl, beat flour, cornstarch, salt, msg, baking powder,
    water, and 2 tsp. oil with an electric beater until smooth. Dip
    meat into batter with tongs; fry in hot oil, turning once, until
    golden brown. Drain; keep warm.

    Stir green pepper and onion into sweet-and-sour sauce. Cover and
    simmer until vegetables are crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Serve
    meat and sauce over rice.


    1/2 cup packed brown sugar
    4 tbsp cornstarch
    16 oz can pineapple tidbits, drained (reserve syrup)
    1/2 cup vinegar
    4 tbsp catsup

    In 2-quart saucepan, mix sugar and cornstarch. Add enough water
    to reserved pineapple juice to measure 2 cups. Stir juice mixture,
    vinegar, and catsup into cornstarch mixture. Cook, stirring
    constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Stir in pineapple.
    Keep warm over very low heat.
