    Hey Jude's Note:

    This is a good recipe to have on hand if you're stuck in a cabin in the Northwoods, craving sweet sour chicken, and there's not one Chinese take-out place within 50 miles. That's about the only time I make this since it's way too easy, when I'm home, to pick up the phone and order it from the place down the street! This is a Madame Wong recipe.

    1. 1
      Combine chicken, salt, egg and cornstarch. Mix well with your hand. Heat oil until it is smoking hot. Drop chicken into oil one piece at a time. Don't crowd the pieces, do this in batches. Deep-fry until crispy, about 3 minutes. Remove and set aside. Leave oil in pot, you'll reuse it in step 3.
    2. 2
      To make sauce: Pour water, sugar, tomato ketchup and vinegar into saucepan. Bring to a boil. Stir in dissolved cornstarch. Add peppers and pineapple chunks.
    3. 3
      Reheat oil until it is smoking hot. Fry chicken 1 minute more. Remove to a platter. Pour sauce over chicken, serve hot with steamed rice.

      Ouch! The sauce is very McDonald's Chinese ... perhaps it was the use of "ketchup"?
