Sweet and Sour Chicken

I got this recipe from my sister Laurie when I was a pretty newly-wed. We love this recipe. It is super easy. I love that the ingredients for the sauce are things that I always have on hand. It is really versatile too. You can do whole chicken breasts, or cut them up into bite sized pieces. I've done just about every size there is, however, our favorite is bite sized pieces. I often add a can of (drained) pineapple to this (Steve loves pineapple in it). I have also cooked this in a crockpot instead of baking it. I think I have also seen someone in my family do it in a dutch oven. If you like sweet and sour, you should try this recipe!

Sweet and Sour Chicken

8-10 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1-2 cups flour (seasoned with salt and any other spices you want)

Put flour and spices in large ziplock baggie. Add chicken and shake until chicken is well coated. Saute chicken in a little bit of oil in a skillet until browned. Place in a 9x13 or large casserole dish

2 cubes chicken bullion
1 cup hot water
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 T. soy sauce
1 cup vinegar
2/3 cup ketchup

Bring all ingredients to a boil in a sauce pan. Pour over chicken and bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour. Serve over hot, cooked rice.
