This chicken reminds me of sesame chicken from the local Chinese restaurant, only made with a sweet and sour sauce instead of sesame sauce. You may want to double the sauce for extra sauce for dipping or to put on rice.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

  3. Beat egg and milk in a bowl big enough to dip chicken pieces.
  4. Mix cornstarch, salt, pepper, MSG, and/or any desired seasonings in a bowl to coat chicken.
  5. Dip chicken pieces in egg mixture and coat with flour mixture.
  6. Deep fry chicken until breading is crisp. (Do not worry if insides are still pink.).
  7. Mix sauce ingredients in a medium-sized baking dish. (Double sauce ingredients if you want extra sauce for dipping.).
  8. Place chicken in baking dish with sauce and bake for about 45 minutes, turning occasionally.
  9. For dipping sauce, mix 2 teaspoons water and 2 teaspoons cornstarch and add to sauce. Heat in a saucepan, stirring, until sauce is thickened.
