1/2 c water
1/2 c vinegar
3/4 c sugar (or less depending on your taste)
1/3 c ketchup
2 Tbsp soy sauce
1-2 Tbsp corn starch
1/4 c cold water
Additional ingredients that you'd like to add. For example: chicken, pineapple chunks, red or green peppers, mushrooms, pea pods, mushrooms, etc. (If you use pineapple you can use some of the juice. Just cut down on the sugar you add)
Don't forget the rice
Stir water, vinegar, and sugar in pan until well mixed. Add ketchup and soy sauce. Stir occasionally.
Heat over med-high heat until bubbly. Meanwhile, make a corn starch slurry.In order to thicken the sauce you'll need to add a corn starch slurry; a mixture of corn starch and water. Mix the corn starch and water together until it's all dissolved. Pour a little at a time over the bubbling mixture and it will start to thicken up. If you want it thicker, add more of the corn starch mixture. If it gets too thick, just add a little water to the sauce.
Yes, I added chicken nuggets. It's so much easier than cutting and cooking chicken to make sweet and sour chicken. This also makes a great dipping sauce for chicken nuggets. I'm working on a post on lots of ideas to use chicken nuggets. Cause let's just say that I'm getting pretty tired of plain old chicken nuggets. Stay tuned.
