I've tried to find a good sweet and sour sauce recipe for years, not only good but really easy too. Turns a simple stir fry into something really good. - 23 Aug 2011


Absolutley Delicious! I made this to go over the Chinese Chicken Balls (a recipe on here) and it all went down a storm! My 15 year old fussy son said it was better than what you get from the take away - a HUGE compliment, believe me! - 05 Aug 2015


Trying to decide what to cook with the chicken I had in the freezer - and not a lot else in the house! .... This was absolutely perfect - quick and easy to make and really tasty - I did have to use plain flour rather than cornflour but it was fabulous - 11 Apr 2015
