“I tried some recipes for making sweet & sour sauce for chicken balls, while they were pretty good I quickly realized with a few tweaks and additions it could make the ultimate sweet & sour!! So I made some up, fried some chicken and then threw the chicken in the sauce.... WOW!!! What a great taste!! I would like to thank lorac for the inspiration on the sauce,”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add the oil, sugar, and vinegar to a small saucepan set on 1/4 full heat stirring until sugar dissolves in vinegar, then add the pineapple juice.
  2. Add the paprika and other spices followed by the ketchup, then the water.
  3. Turn up the heat a bit and stir frequently almost bringing to a boil for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add cornstarch and flour, use a whisk to make sure no clumps form. Toss in the green peppers.
  5. Keep on low heat stirring occasionally, cook your chicken however you like it, I fry mine. If your sauce starts getting a bit to thick don't worry just add a small amount of water and stir.
  6. When you're finished cooking your chicken cut it up and toss it in the sauce which should now be almost ready. Cook it in the sauce for 4-7 minutes.
  7. Remove from heat and enjoy! For best results eat it all the day you make it.
