This is an absolutely delicious sauce that goes well with almost anything, I can’t wait to try it with some chicken nuggets, lol. Ever since an un-named arched fast food place got rid of their sweet-chili dipping sauce I have been sad, this is better than what they had, and I can’t wait to try it, lol.

  • 1/2 Cup Rice Vinegar
  • 1 Cup Water
  • 3 Tbsp Minced Garlic
  • 1 Tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 3/4 Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 4-5 Tbsp Chili Paste
  • Tbsp Cornstarch
  • 3-4 Tbsp Warm Water


  • Add Vinegar, Water, Minced Garlic, and Soy Sauce to a medium to large sauce pan. After a few minutes add both sugars and dissolve. Bring to a boil. Simmer for about 5 minutes.
  • Add Chili Paste and allow to simmer for a few minutes.
  • Mix Corn Starch and the Warm Water in a small bowl till Corn Starch is fully dissolved. Pour into sauce pan while whisking.
  • Simmer all for 5-10 minutes stirring often to prevent burning. Sauce will thicken, if you make it too thick, add a little water. Sauce will thicken slightly after it cools.
