      Sweet and Sour Chicken Breasts
      3 to 4 chicken breast halves
      1/2 cup all-purpose flour
      1 scant tsp ground ginger
      1/2 tsp salt
      1/4 tsp ground black pepper
      1/4 tsp garlic powder
      1 tbs extra virgin olive oil
      1 tbs butter
      4 to 6 green onions, thinly sliced
      1 clove garlic, finely minced
      1/2 cup orange juice
      1/3 cup chicken broth
      3 tbs rice vinegar
      3 tbs brown sugar
      2 tbs low sodium soy sauce
      2 tbs ketchup
      2 tbs dry sherry or Chinese cooking wine, optional
      1 tbs cornstarch dissolved in 1 tablespoon water
      Cut each chicken breast into 2 pieces.

      Put each chicken piece between sheets of plastic wrap and pound to thin to about 1/4-inch thickness. Alternatively, carefully slice each chicken breast in half horizontally, making thin cutlets.
      In a plate or bowl, combine the flour, ginger, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Dredge chicken pieces in the flour mixture.
      Heat the butter and olive oil in a large skillet or sauté pan.
      Brown the chicken for about 4 minutes on each side, until browned and cooked through.

      Remove to a warm serving platter and keep warm.
      While the chicken is cooking, combine the sauce ingredients in a bowl and whisk to blend. Set aside.
      Add the green onions and garlic to the skillet and cook, stirring, for about 1 to 2 min. Add the sauce mixture and continue cooking, stirring, until thickened.

      Simmer for 1 min.
      Spoon the sauce over the chicken pieces and serve with hot cooked rice or noodles. Serves 4-6
