Sweet and Sour Chicken

FINALLY! I posted it! It's from my friend Jessica.

¾ cup of cornstarch
¼ cup of flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
½ teaspoon of salt
¼ teaspoon of pepper
½ cup of water
1 egg slightly beaten

¾ cup of sugar
4 tablespoons of ketchup
½ cup of cider or red wine vinegar (you can use regular vinegar too. It changes the taste a bit but you may like it better if you don't like the strong taste of cider vinegar)
1 tablespoon of soy sauce
½ teaspoon of garlic powder

Directions: Cut up chicken breast into cubes and season. Mix together all ingredients for batter in a small bowl. Dip chicken in batter and fry on medium heat until chicken is golden brown. Then mix together all ingredients for sauce together in a small pot and heat until boil and then simmer on low heat until thick. Serve with white rice.
