You can grill or sauté the chicken, either one turns this into a slightly different, yet still fantastic chicken. Goes great with red beans and rice (see recipe 48913 or buy a prepacked box) or as filling for a Tex Mex-type burrito or enchilada. Also could be 'kabobed' and grilled using the vinegar sauce as a mop. Very versatile! And feel free to play with the tart and sweet balance to your liking by adding more or less vinegar and sugar.
