This is from the June 2008 issue of Redbook magazine. We like to have this with jasmine rice and steamed veggies.

Easy and delicious. I made 3 breasts but kept the sauce ingredients the same. I let the sauce simmer down to a sticky gooey glaze which stuck to the chicken very well. Served with brown rice.
