This recipe is from Marcia Adams' book Cooking from Quilt County. I loved this non-ketchup based marinade. I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts.

Very good! The chicken was juicy, and the marinade gave it a wonderful, subtle flavor. I followed the ingredient list exactly, except I used boneless, skinless breasts. Thanks for posting!
