Sweet n' Sour Chicken & Ham Fried Rice

 
Sweet n' Sour Chicken
2-3 chicken breasts, cubed
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
cornstarch
1 egg, beaten with 1 Tbsp. water
1 C. sugar
1/3 C. vinegar
1/3 C. ketchup
1/4 C. chicken broth
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. soy sauce

Cube chicken in bite size pieces and sprinkle with garlic salt. Let sit for one hour. Dip chicken in the beaten egg and then the cornstarch. Fry in hot oil until brown. Place in casserole dish. Combine sugar, vinegar, chicken broth, salt, and soy sauce. Microwave for five minutes, stirring halfway through. Pour over chicken and bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes, until the sauce is thickened. Makes 4 servings.
 
Ham Fried Rice
 
Cook 1 cup of uncooked rice which yields 2 cups of cooked rice. (4 servings)
3 scrambled eggs (made in wok with oil and use a whisk to make the egg pieces small)
1/2 C. Frozen Peas
1 bunch green onion, finely chopped
 Ham (cut into small pieces)
Dash of salt
Veg. oil
1-2 tsp. soy sauce

Scramble the eggs in the wok with some oil. Cook until just barely done. Take out and set aside. Put in the ham and heat it up. Set that aside also. Next put the pre-cooked rice in the wok with some oil. Add the frozen frozen peas, heat those. Last, add the eggs, ham, onion, salt and soy sauce and mix together. Use the leftover sauce from the sweet n' sour chicken to pour over top of the rice. Enjoy!
