Top Review by DeeVaFoodie

This "glaze" would work better as a marinade and/or a basting sauce. It was too thin and watery to work as a glaze. It ran right off of the chicken for the most part. The flavor is okay, but it didn't wow us. If I made this again at all I would just marinate the chicken in it for a few hours or so and then baste the meat with it during cooking. Made for Bargain Basement tag game.
