Baked Sweet and Sour Chicken

I found this recipe from I got there looking for other recipe but ended up trying this delicious looking sweet and sour chicken. It’s a bit different from the way usual sweet and sour dishes are cooked, this one is pre-cooked by pan-frying then, baked.

I followed the recipe exactly except I added a couple teaspoons of ground cayenne pepper to the sauce, as requested by my husband who is not a big fan of sweet and sour anything but since I like it, he’s okay with it, as long as there’s some heat he’s more than willing to eat it.

So here’s what I ended up with. I used chicken thigh fillet, btw and I think that an hour in the oven is too much, I should have taken them out earlier..about 45 mins or less should have been perfect.

I’ll keep in mind next time; this sweet and sour, spicy-hot chicken is so good. Don’t forget to make extra rice 🙂

Happy Cooking! 😊

season chicken fillet pieces with salt and pepper,  dredge in cornstarch and dip in slightly seasoned eggs

pan-fry coated chicken and lay them in a baking pan; make the sauce and pour over chicken. Put in the preheated oven for 45 mins ( thigh fillet) to an hour (for chicken breast)

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • While the oil is heating, cut the chicken breasts into 1-inch pieces.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Place the cornstarch in a gallon-sized ziploc bag.
  • Put the chicken into the bag with the cornstarch and seal, tossing to coat the chicken.
  • Whisk the eggs together in a shallow bowl, season lightly with salt and pepper.
  • Dip the cornstarch-coated chicken pieces in the egg and place them carefully in a single layer in the hot skillet.
  • Cook for 1-2 minutes and then flip each piece over to cook on the other side until nicely golden but not all the way cooked through.
  • Place chicken pieces in a single layer in a baking dish.
  • Mix the sauce ingredients together in a medium bowl and pour over the chicken in the baking dish.
  • Bake for one hour, turning the chicken once or twice while cooking to coat evenly with sauce.
  • Sprinkle baked chicken with chili flakes, if using before serving over hot, steamed rice. Enjoy! 😊
