READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by sarah hills

SO Sweet and good!! Adds variety to every day cream and garlic bases for chicken! I made this up in a hurry one day while waiting for my husband to come home so we could go fishing!

Pretty good! I halved the sauce ingredients for two chicken breasts. It did seem that no matter how low I turned the heat, the "candy" wanted to burn. I covered the chicken to try to accelerate the cooking/stop the blackening. I also added about 2 tbs of tamari soy so the salt could balance out the sweet. I sliced one breast thin and used it in a simple green salad. I'll probably use the other breast with the sauce with carrots. I'd try it again for a salad treatment. The candy coating kept the chicken very moist. Thanks, Sarah!
