Sweet Chilli Sauce

Last week I posted my Chicken Dippers in Sweet Potato Pancake Baps and in this recipe I mention eating these delicious dippers with Sweet Chilli Sauce. So here is that recipe I promised I would put on my blog. 

Yes, I know you can buy sweet chilli sauce from the supermarket. However, being sugar free means it’s a little bit more difficult for me to buy from the shops. So I decided to make my own and it was delicious. 

My husband Howard really enjoyed it and as I mentioned in my previous blog he was a very happy boy when this meal was served twice to him. On both occasions he smothered the chicken dippers in the sauce and then ate it like a burger. There was not a crumb left on his plate and he even ate the salad too. It must have been good. 

Makes about 100mls

  • Start by slicing the chillies.
    • You can remove the seeds but you don’t have too.

Sweet Chilli Sauce

My Sweet Chilli Dipping Sauce was delicious with my Chicken Dippers In A Sweet Potato Pancake Bap. I’m looking forward to trying it in other recipes as well. I’m sure it will be delicious with all different types of meals. The sweet chilli sauce will keep in the fridge for a couple of weeks. However you decide to eat this sauce, as always, enjoy .
