    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.

      Very tasty! I pan fried the chicken rather than deep frying and it came out very nice. Next time I will add a can of pineapple chunks and maybe a green or red pepper.

      This is mighty tasty chicken and the sauce is excellent according to my son. I didn't want to drag out my deep fryer, so I just shallow fried and I also only baked the chicken for 30 min. The sauce was a bit runny still, so I thickened it with the suggested cornstarch slurry. :)
