  • 1 pound boneless chicken breasts
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • ½ cup cornstarch
  • ¼ cup oil
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  3. In a bowl, combine the ketchup, garlic powder, sugar, vinegar, and soy sauce; set aside.
  4. Season the chicken with pepper and salt. Toss it lightly in cornstarch to coat. Dip each chicken piece into the beaten eggs.
