Very tasty chicken! I've seen this very recipe in my own collection before and have been wanting to try it. I got a little excited and put a whole t-ful of dried mint flakes in, but we love mint, so it was fine. I love the citrus and will probably experiment with lime and orange as well. I let the chicken drain on paper towels and thickened the sauce with cornstarch to serve over rice. DH doesn't like too much acidic taste so if I make this next time, I'll probably add an extra T-ful of sugar. Thanks for posting!
