Sweet & Sour Sauce for Chicken

**This is a sweet & sour sauce my mom made growing up that everyone loved. It was used with a breaded chicken that was cooked in the oven. I used it with meatballs, so I revamped it a little to use with meatballs. It seemed too sweet without being baked in oven with the chicken. I am going to give 2 recipes. One is my moms original, and another is this recipe re-vamped **

Moms Original Sweet & Sour

1 cup pineapple juice

1/4 cup ketchup

1 tsp salt

1 1/2 cups sugar

1/8 cup vinegar

Mix all ingredients together and pour over chicken .... see below


1/2 cup flour

1/2 cup corn starch

1 tsp garlic salt

2-3 eggs

Chicken drumsticks and wings

In a bowl, place eggs and beat well. In a large baggie, mix together the flour, cornstarch and garlic salt.

Dip the chicken in the egg mixture, then shake the chicken in the flour mixture. Lay out on a jelly roll pan. Pour the sweet n sour mixture over the chicken. Bake at 350" for 45-60 minutes.
