Sweet and Sour Chicken

So, I got a recipe from my brother-in-law, Mark, for some sweet and sour meatballs (which were pretty tasty). I tweeked the sauce a bit and made it with chicken instead of meatballs and I think it turned out pretty good. Of course, you can choose to use whatever type of meat you like best.

Sweet and Sour Chicken

1 cup pineapple juice (the pineapple to be used later)
2 Tbl soy sauce
1/4 c vinegar
4 Tbl ketchup
1/4 - 1/3 c sugar (depending on how sweet you want it)
1/3 c water
1 minced garlic clove
2 Tbl cornstarch

Mix ingredients together and cook over medium heat until sauce thickens. Saute one coarsly chopped red pepper and add to sauce. Add one can (or a bit less than a full can) of pineapple chunks or tidbits (without the juice). Reduce heat and simmer while preparing the chicken.

3 chicken breasts, cubed
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 c milk
2 c flour
salt and pepper

Beat eggs and milk together and dip chicken in it, then in flour until well coated (try to strain most of the egg off before putting it into the flour so it doesn't get too gloppy). Cook chicken in a little oil, and season with salt and pepper, until completely cooked and brown. At this point you could add the sauce into the chicken, but I prefer to keep it separate until dishing up, so that the chicken doesn't get soggy. Serve over rice.
