Sweet and tangy sauce for meatballs or chicken. I developed this recipe as a variation on my simple sweet and sour dipping sauce used in my Asian inspired Confetti Rolls recipe. Still very simple to make but a little more sophisticated with the addition of brown sugar, pineapple and green pepper. I hope you enjoy it too!
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon seasoning salt (I use Johnny's brand)
- 1 (8 ounce) can pineapple tidbits, undrained (or chunks)
- 1⁄2 cup vinegar
- 2⁄3 cup water
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons maraschino cherry juice
- 1 small green pepper, chopped into 1-inch pieces
- In medium saucepan stir together both sugars, cornstarch and seasoning salt. Mix well.
- Stir in pineapple, vinegar and water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat just enough to keep it at a low boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes.
- Stir in Worcestershire and cherry juice.
- Add green pepper, reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 3 minutes.
- For Meatballs: Pour sauce over your favorite cooked meatballs in casserole dish or in a pan on the stove and heat through.
- For Chicken: Place boneless, skinless chicken breasts into 13x9x2 inch baking dish sprayed lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Cover and bake at 350° for 20-30 minutes depending on thickness of chicken. Bake until chicken is no longer pink in the center. Uncover the last 10 minutes of cooking.
