Sweet and Sour Chicken

This is a recipe that comes from my moms kitchen. She really has the best recipes so whenever I go to her recipe book I know that I will pull out a good one. This recipe is a bit time consuming but well worth the effort. This is a HUGE family favorite. Even the little ladies like it. (I do serve theirs without the sauce)
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup corn starch
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp canola oil
1/2 cup water
1/2 pound chicken cut in bite size pieces
mix dry ingredients then mix with water and oil to make a batter. Dip the chicken pieces in batter. Fry in small amount of canola oil.

1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
2 T corn starch
1 can (8 ounces) pineapple tidbits, drain but reserve liquid
1/4 cup vinegar
2 T ketchup
1/4 cup onion, diced
1/4 cup green pepper, diced
1/4 cup celery, diced

In 2 quart sauce pan mix sugar and cornstarch. Add enough water to reserved pineapple juice to measure one cup. Stir syrup mixture, vinegar, and ketchup into cornstarch mixture. Cook and stir constantly until it boils and thickens. Stir in pineapple, onions, green pepper, and celery. Cook until tender. Add chicken and serve over rice. Enjoy
