1 cup corn starch
1large egg
½ cup canola oil, for frying the chicken
salt and pepper
6 tablespoons ketchup
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1¼ pounds chicken tenderloin, cubed


Scramble the egg in a medium bowl.
Dip the chicken into the bowl.
Add the corn starch to another bowl and season with a pinch of salt and pepper; dip the chicken in the corn starch after dipping it in the egg.
Fry in the canola oil until golden.
Combine the rest of the ingredients in a sauce pan (sugar, water, pineapple juice, soy sauce, egg, apple cider vinegar, and ketchup). Simmer until it slightly thickens.
Bake the chicken in the oven at 350 in a covered casserole dish for about 40 minutes. Then remove from the oven and pour the sauce on top. Put back in the oven uncovered for about 15 more minutes.
