  • 3/4 cup soft brown sugar (177ml)
  • 4 Tbs tomato ketchup (59ml)
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar (118ml)
  • 1 Tbs soy sauce (15ml)
  • 2-3 large boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into chunks
  • 1 cup corn flour (or enough to coat chicken)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup sunflower oil (approx enough to shallow fry in deep frying pan)


    1. First assemble sauce by whisking together all sauce ingredients. Set aside.
    2. Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Heat oil in a frying pan on medium-high heat.
    3. Toss half of the chicken into the corn flour and then coat with egg. Repeat until with the remainder of the chicken. In at least two batches, fry the chicken, making sure all sides are brown. Place in an oven proof dish
    4. Pour sauce over chicken and turn chicken so both sides are coated. Bake for approx 45 mins, making sure to turn chicken over every 15 minutes.
    5. Serve hot with rice and veggies, add pineapple or stir fry veg to your taste
