“This is an easy lunch or dinner that tastes just like take out! Very forgiving and allows for substitutions! This is enough for 4 kids, double for a family dinner! Serve this as a sauce for chicken nuggets and rice. You can substitute a can of orange soda for the pineapple juice.”

I wrote this recipe! PLEASE disregard the vinegar! You can use vinegar or ketchup, but not both! Also, you can use orange/ lemon lime soda or ginger ale instead of pineapple juice and water. Cut the sugar way down if you use soda. It is also fantastic with brown sugar and/ or soy sauce. I make this almost daily. (with whatever combo of ingredients I have on hand).The recipe is so forgiving and it will whip up in a sauce pan in no time. . My kids dip everything in it!

Easy and good. I ended up dissolving the cornstarch in pineapple juice because I started with a bigger can of pineapple. And I used brown sugar - didn't measure but tried to add a little less than a cup.
