I'm looking for a fairly simple but really tasty sweet n sour recipe (no battered meat though) can anyone share a great one?

I do a really simple sauce, 2 parts tomato ketchup to 1 part vinegar, soy sauce, and honey. Bit of garlic powder and a pinch of fennel. You have to leave it for an hour or so before using it. Sounds fairly horrid but it's actually quite authentic tasting. I just use roast chicken chunks with veg and noodles and cook it together for 3 or 4 minuted.

Our sauce is some corn flour and water, demerara sugar, white vinegar (not white wine vinegar), dark soy sauce, chicken stock, thick tomato gloop from tinned tomatoes, some pineapple juice from tinned pineapples. Cook your chicken off, and add with any veg you want - we usually put in chopped tinned toms, red/green peppers, and some pineapple. Cook for about an hour.
