Sweet and Sour Chicken

I saw this recipe yesterday on My Kitchen Cafe's Blog I made it tonight for dinner, and it is AWESOME. I will definately be making this again. I made an extra dose of Sauce to drizzle on top and served with side of broccoli. I highly recommend this recipe!!!! Brad, my husbad thought it was really good too

Sweet and Sour Chicken
3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (I used 2)
Salt and pepper (Omitted this part)
1 cup cornstarch
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup canola oil

Cut boneless chicken breasts into chunks. Season with salt and pepper. Dip chicken in cornstarch and then in egg. Fry in a little oil until brown but not cooked through. Place in a single layer in a baking dish. Mix sauce ingredients (below) together and pour over chicken.

¾ cup sugar
4 tablespoons ketchup (used no salt added)
½ cup vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon garlic salt (used garlic powder)

Bake for one hour at 325 degrees. Turn chicken every 15 minutes. If you like extra sauce, make another batch of sauce and bring it to a boil on the stove top. Stir constantly and let cook over medium heat until thickened and reduced - about 6-8 minutes.

Grilled pizza

I got this idea from the cooking board, but was scared to give it a try. When i was at the library the other day they had a recipe book for it.
We used a mix for the dough so all I had to do was add water and a little oil. Follow instructions on package
Heat Grill on high for 10 minutes
Sprinkle baking mat with corn meal, Roll dough out.
Brush crust with Oil Both Sides more is better than not enough.
Reduce Heat To medium
Place crust on grill from back to front, close lid and wait 3 minutes DO NOT open it early!
Remove crust from grill onto pizza peel or cookie sheets with no sides.
Top Pizza grilled side up, ungrilled side down, as you will be grilling this side of the dough next.
Place back on grill, turning middle burner off if you have 3 burner grill if you just have 2 burner, besure to rotate pizza in middle of grilling.
Close lid and wait about 7 to 10 minutes with 3 burner grill.
We put Pesto for our sauce, Tomatos, Spinach, Green Peppers and Mozerella Cheese. It was really good. The crust got a little over cooked but will try another one again soon.
