We loved this! It really isn't time consuming at all. The sauce is sweet but not overbearingly. I cut the recipe down to serve 2 and it worked great. I did use the bone-in skin on chicken breast. That's all we ever eat. I had enough sauce leftover to serve it on the side for dipping. Served Red Onion Confit along side for a wonderful finish. Thanks for posting. :)
