Sweet n sour sauce but no fruit juice

I plant to make some sweet n sour chicken, but I dont have any pineapple juice or orange juice as the recipe calls for. I do have lemons, honey, and several kinds of jelly, does any of that work or is it a set up for failure?
molasses maybe?

For the sour can always add vinegar.

If you mix equal parts lemon with honey, you can use that in place of the pineapple/orange juice.

Any kind of jelly will work. Mix it with mustard or sweet chili sauce (such as Heinz), and you've got a winner.
