I really liked this! Wasn't sure about the type of vinegar, but I used red wine vinegar and loved it. The chicken was super moist. Hard to come by with boneless, skinless breasts! Thanks so much for sharing.

Wow! I love this sauce! However, I'm a vinegar junkie, so this was near perfect for me. If I was going to serve this to DH, I'd add a little sugar; but for myself- oh, yum! I used red wine vinegar, since the recipe didn't specify color, the result was a gorgeous golden-brown glossy sauce. I also used shallots instead of regular onion, since I had them on hand. Two more (small) changes- I cut the recipe to serve one as I was dining alone- no problem in this case. Second change was that I omitted the vegetable oil- the butter was plenty to keep the chicken from burning, and I'm watching calories so I didn't want to add any more fat than I had to. As I type, I'm licking the last of the sauce off of the plate- a definite keeper. Thanks for posing an outstanding recipe!

My sister said this was a 4, I thought it was a 5-star. Therefore, rounding it up gives it a 5*. You must really like vinegar, however, which I do. Otherwise, better add a little sugar! Really easy to prepare and went extremely well with the Bolo Di Mahishi -- Corn Pudding (Curacao -- Caribbean) I, also, made. Thnx for posting, Syd. Made for ZWT5 for RRR
