I really do understand that! I love fried chicken like the next person and then smothering it in a nice sweet and sour sauce kicks in all the primal brain functions for eating fat and sweet. Let me be brutally honest here, this is essentially deep fried chicken with a sweet and sour dipping sauce melted all over it.

Step-By-Step

1Cut chicken into bite sized pieces. Beat eggs in a shallow bowl with a fork: set aside.

Pour cornstarch into a shallow bowl and roll chicken in it. When coated, dip chicken into beaten eggs.
2Heat just enough oil to cover the bottom of a non stick skillet on medium high heat. Place coated chicken pieces into the pan and heat until brown
3In a medium sized mixing bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients: pineapple juice, soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, ketchup and salt. Pour on browned chicken.

Simmer chicken with the lid covering only half of the pan to let the heat escape.
