Sweet & Sour Chicken

Sweet and sour chicken recipe from Kathy and Birdie's family recipe book. This makes a yummy dinner with rice and veggies on the side. It takes a little extra stirring over a hot stove, but an easy recipe to make. You'll love to have this as leftover lunch, that is if there's any left. At Kathy's house, that has never happened.

Birdie and Kathy are sisters and part of the Utah Avenue Insurance team. They love to work, play and bake together. Baking with family is one of Birdie and Kathy's favorite things to do. The sisters have taught their kids the joy of cooking and want to share some of their favorite recipes with you that have been passed to them through multiple generations.

Sweet and Sour Chicken

  • 1 Cup Sugar

  • 1/2 Cup Catsup

  • 4 tsp Corn Starch

  • 1 Cup Cold Water

  • 1/2 Cup Vinegar

  • 4 tsp Soy Sauce

Combine all dry ingredients in medium to large pot. Measure out vinegar and catsup in same measuring cup and add to dry mixture. This makes it less messy to add catsup. Then add cold water and soy sauce. Mix stirring constantly until boiling. In separate pan, brown any type of chicken meat. When cooked, place chicken in any type of baking pan and cover with sauce. Bake at 325-350 until chicken is cooked through, or place in a crock pot on low until done.


  • Deep fry battered chicken and mix with sauce and serve up with side of rice.

  • Combine sauce with one pint of jam and a dozen or so raw chicken legs and thighs in crock pot. Cook all day on low. This is so good.

  • Add chunky chopped onions and pineapple with sauce and chicken and bake until onions are soft. Serve with side of rice and veggies.
