Our Swiss Chalet restaurant has closed, so cannot get the sauce. Looked up homemade sauce and got yours. Excellent!! I had to go buy the Tabasco sauce, but otherwise had every thing on hand. Left out the oil, and had to use more thickening. Maybe the oil helps it thicken?? This will be used with the store bought already cooked Lemon Pepper chickens. With oven fries and a salad. Yum!
Double corn starch, use chicken broth instead of cube/water. It's not Swiss chalet sauce but very good in its own right. This recipe needs more ratings it's great on a whole chicken or rack of ribs.
I am from Canada a new American Citizen and I have been just dying to get back and go to a SC. I found this recipe and ...keep in mind I am extremely picky... I loved this sauce. I do not add the oil because I frankly do not see the need to add the empty calories when it tastes just marvelous without it. Follow measurements exactly. I make 9 cups of this stuff for my family of 7 lol.
Another thing I have found from trial and error, mix your cornstarch separately and then add slowly. Make double what it says because it needs more but you can decide as you go and it thickens where you want it to be...so its much easier that way.
Enjoy...its a taste of home and warms my heart!
I'm suprised that this recipe doesn't have more reviews. It tastes very close, but probally better because it's home made. I heard that Swiss Chalet mixes this sauce up in 5 gallon buckets...I doubled the cornstarch as well for a thicker sauce. Thanks!
Pretty darn close! I would add a bit more cornstarch, as the sauce was just a little too watery. Thanks for the share!
