I used instant coffee after I forgot to brew some and it was a little to strong so had to add extra sugar but that was my fault and not the recipes BUT it still turned out YUMMY. I used boneless, skinless chicken breast and they were so moist and tender. Made for Comfort Cafe Tag janiuary 2009.
I had 4 breasts and 8 drumsticks so I made 1 1/2 times the amount of sauce. Used apple cider vinegar since that's what I had. I don't think I let the sauce reduce quite enough but it still had a good flavor.
My sauce was rich and thick much like a BBQ sauce but more smokey and complex. After making the sauce and letting it cool for an hour or so I tried it and was a little concerned. Despite using a low-sodium soy sauce, the flavor was a tad too earty and salty for me. I added 1/2 of white vinegar plus another tablepoon of ketsup and resisted the urge to play with it further. During the final baking, the sauce mellowed quite a bit and resulted in a pleasing final dish. Thanks Harry for a good alternative to my typical marinated chicken breasts.
Yummy! Even the kids loved this dish. The marinade keeps the chicken moist and gives a flavor similar to barbecue but lighter and not overly saucy. I used skinless chicken breasts with bones and marinated in the fridge for about 2 hours. Easy and delicious! Thanks for the recipe!
Can substitute tomato sauce for the ketchup! Now that saved me a lot of typing time! Just a slight difference in my recipe but either would be good I'm sure.
