Sweet and Sour Chicken

This is a recipe from my friend Mariana. It is always a favorite! I have tried this recipe with boneless, skinless chicken and was not as happy with it. I have also tried it in the crock pot (instead of baking for an hour in the oven, place the chicken and then the sauce in the crock pot and cook on low for about 8 hours). The breading is not as crispy, but the flavor is fabulous! It definitely works well as a crock pot dish.

2 1/2 pounds chicken pieces (not boneless-skinless--our favorites are drumsticks)
garlic powder
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup flour
4 Tbsp margarine
2 cups sugar
1 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup ketchup
2 Tbsp soy sauce

Wash and pat dry chicken pieces. Sprinkle with garlic powder. Dip in beaten egg, then in flour to coat. Brown in margarine in a saute pan. Place in baking dish. Combine all other ingredients and pour over chicken. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour, turning once.
