Sweet and Sour Chicken

When we first got married my husband asked if I could find a recipe for sweet and sour chicken. This is one I tried and its a keeper!

3 pounds chicken breast
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 beaten egg
4-6 tablespoons flour or cornstarch
3/4 C. sugar
1/2 C. vinegar
1/2 C. chicken broth
3 1/2 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon soy sauce

Sprinkle chicken with garlic salt and pepper. Let stand for 5-10 minutes. Preheat 325 degrees. Dip chicken in beaten egg, and then in four or cornstarch. Place in baking dish. Cover with the sauce: Mix sugar, vinegar, chicken broth, ketchup, soy sauce and 2 TBSP cornstarch. Pour directly over chicken breasts. Bake uncovered at 325 for 1 hour, or until sauce is thick and dark in color.
