    UmmHumza's Note:

    This recipe was taught to me by a dear family friend. It is quick and easy to make and my family really enjoys it. The recipe calls for a lot of butter. Since I am watching my health I usually only use 3 tablespoons of butter. Feel free to adjust to your taste. I hope you like it- this is my first recipe post on Zaar!

      Interesting tangy sauce for chicken. Little effort required and result well worth it. Highly recommended.
