Ginger's Hot & Tangy Buttered Chicken

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Recipe by Ginger_B

This is a dish brimming full of robust flavor. It's also very aromatic, and will fill your kitchen with a mouth-watered scent while it's cooking. My dad originally cooked this for me, it has been one of my favorites for years. On my own, I've tweaked a few of the ingredients and amounts to my tastes. Adjust them as you would prefer. Some may want less spicy, some may be more worried about all the margarine or vinegar. The apple cider vinegar gives it a tart but nice flavor. You can reduce the amount if it's not to your liking, but I would highly suggest not omitting the vinegar, the flavor will suffer terribly. From my home to yours, I hope you enjoy. This is especially liked by the husbands, especially those who crave spicy foods.

Delicous! I couldn't wait until it came out of the oven because it smelled sooooo good. I did cut back on the hot pepper sauce because it seemed like it would be too spicy for me with the entire 6 T. Thanks for posting!
