The College Student's Sweet and Sour Chicken

I love this recipe because it is tasty and cheap.

The Sauce
1/2 cup water
5 tablespoons rice vinegar (I've also used cider vinegar and I thought that turned out good)
5 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons ketchup
2 teaspoons soy sauce
4 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons ginger powder
Dash pepper flakes (optional)
2 teaspoon cornstarch dissolved
in 2 tablespoons cold water

Mix all ingredients together in a small saucepan except for cornstarch. Heat until boiling, then add cornstarch slurry. Heat for a bit longer before removing from heat.

I usually use stir-fried chicken covered in white flour (rice flour if I can get it.) Add rice. Eat.


The Sauce Packet Sauce (Yeah, you know you got em! =P)

1/2 cup water
5 tablespoons rice vinegar (or 10 packets malt vinegar, or 10 packets white vinegar if you live in Canada)
5 tablespoons sugar
4 packets of ketchup
1 packet soy sauce
1 packet Pizza Hunt pepper flakes (optional)
4 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons ginger powder
2 teaspoon cornstarch dissolved
in 2 tablespoons cold water

From my experience, the "standard" sized sauce packet usually contains about 2 teaspoons sauce.
