This recipe is really good, here's a little hint. Instead of the flour for the thickening, add about 2 tlbs. of cornstarch to 3/4 cup of ketchep, mix it up well until there are no lumps and pour the ketchep mixture in the hot sauce, it's thickens nicely and ketchup is a must in sweet and sour sauce I think. I added lots of chopped different colour peppers and onions. Yummy over rice. Read More

DO NOT USE CRUSHED PINEAPPLE! I would probably cut down on the vinegar too as the recommended amount makes for a very very strong sauce. I think with some tweaking to suit your families tastes this could quickly become a fave!!!!!! ( I know I am still experimenting!) Read More

This was amazing! I used corn starch (2 TSP) in place of Flour to lower the WW pps and it is still amazing! Read More

This was a great for a quick put together meal. I didn't have celery or the pineapple but it worked really well substituting mandarin oranges and dried cranberries. I also added a clove of minced garlic, onion, sliced carrot and used corn starch to thicken. Tastes great using pork also. Read More

To give this dish that orangey color, I added four tablespoons of catsup. I cut back on the sugar because I used pineapple juice instead of the chunks. I also used cornstarch to thicken and not flour. With my chicken, I dipped the pieces into egg and then into cornstarch and deep fried. Once done, I put everything into my crockpot and let it simmer. Everyone at our Christmas party said it tasted very authentic and I suppose due to my slow cooker, the chicken was incredibly tender. Thanks so much! Read More

Simply wonderful! Finally, a recipe that makes anything we can get at a restaurant pale in comparison. I followed several hints from other people: ommitted celery (we don't like it), used 1/4 cup of soy suace, 1/4 cup of vinager, & 1/4 cup of ketchup; also would suggest taking about 1/2 cup of the hot liquid out, mixing it with the flour and then returning it to the rest of the mixture to avoid lumps. Took this to a pot-luck, served over white rice, and it was all but licked clean. The best part: my family loves it. Thanks! Read More

I had to "sneak a little taste" of it already & I can't believe how something that was as easy as this was to make can be soooooooo good! I know my family is going to love it! There will be no leftovers tonight! Thanks Sal for submitting this recipe! Read More

I love this recipe!! The sauce is very tangy, but really good. I think it would be too tangy if you didn't serve it over rice. I'll be using this recipe from now on!! Read More
