    Liked the flavour overall -- but my own modifications might have caused the unbalanced taste (brown sugar clumped do I eyeballed; wine was Pinot Grigio and may be too tart; didn't have cornstarch so used flour). Wish it used tomato paste instead of ketchup (too much sugar and preservatives). Would definitely make again and ensure I have the proper ingredients to test it out properly. Used it on pork and it was good enough for 2 servings for everyone! 1 serving is enough for 3-4 people, unless you are using this as soup. Moving to 4 servings was 1 cup of ketchup and wine. Too much for just a sauce -- a full quart pot after thickening and simmering down. Glad I liked it!

    This recipe is amazing, it rivals any Chinese restaurant and is in our opinion better. I cooked for 6 (don’t forget the recipe serves 1) I made sweet and sour chilli chicken. Only a very slight addition to the recipe a dash of fish sauce. Thank you Linda, amazing recipe you are a legend.
