Sweet and Sour Sauce

A recipe for Sweet and Sour Sauce.
  • 1/3 cup white or rice vinegar (Note: rice vinegar gives better results)
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch mixed with 4 teaspoons water
Preparation:Mix the vinegar, brown sugar, ketchup, and soy sauce together and bring to a boil in a small pot. Mix together the cornstarch and water, add to the other ingredients and stir to thicken.

(If desired, you can add 1 green pepper, cut into chunks, and pineapple chunks as desired after adding the cornstarch. For a thicker sauce, increase the cornstarch to 4 teaspoons while keeping the water constant.)

I've been experimenting with chicken marinades and sauces lately, and I thought it would be good to start posting some of them.  After doing a quick search for sweet and sour sauce, I found this one online, which worked out pretty well.  We normally have 1 large chicken breast between the two of us, though, so even though I made a full batch of sauce, I only used half.  It worked really well when cooked with onion, sweet pepper, and fresh pineapple. Noms!
