How do I make the sauce for sweet and sour chicken?
By Caroline from Johns Island, SC
If you are looking for the type that you get in a Chinese restaurant, I have yet to find a recipe that is like it. I finally found a container at Smart and Final that is really good.
There are a lot of recipes on the internet, try Recipezaar.com, they have just about anything you can think of! (01/19/2010)
Three of my favorites, all are great for dipping as well as stir frys.
Makes about 3/4 cup.
Sweet and Sour
Combine the brown sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan. Stir in the vinegar, juice, and soy sauce. Add the ginger and garlic powder. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it is thick and bubbling. Set aside to cool.

PS: Adding a drop of red food coloring adds the color to your sauces. (01/19/2010)
Here is a good sauce that I use on chicken pieces. It's darker than the sauce you have at the Chinese restaurant or buy at the store. The name of the recipe is Japanese chicken.
Cut up roasting chicken and place in baking dish. Combine sauce ingredients in bowl and pour over chicken. Cover and cook chicken at 350 degrees F for approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes or until meat falls of the bone. (01/19/2010)
