Sweet n Sour Chicken

3-4 boneless chicken breasts, cut into cubes

seasoned salt

1/2 cup cornstarch (optional**)

2 eggs, beaten (optional**)

oil - canola, evoo, whatever
3/4 cup sugar or splenda

4 tbs ketchup

1/2 cup distilled white vinegar

1 tbs soy sauce

1 tsp garlic salt
small onion cut into strips
small green pepper julienned

Season chicken with seasoned salt.
(Optional)Dip chicken into the cornstarch to coat. Then dip into the eggs.
** I prefer this recipe without the tempura-ish coating. My husband likes the coating better. Do what you like.  :)
Heat a few tablespoons of oil in a large (the biggest you've got)  skillet and cook your chicken until browned and cooked through.
Meanwhile, mix sugar, ketchup, vinegar, soy sauce, and garlic salt in a bowl with a whisk.
Pour evenly over the chicken, tossing to coat.
Cook until sauce is carmelized.
Remove chicken and add onion and green peppers to the pan.  
Cook until onion is translucent and pepper is bright green.
Add chicken back to the pan for a minute or two.
Serve with rice, fried rice, quinoa, and/or pineapple.
