      Check the chicken to see if its done, If it has just a hint of pink remove it to a serving platter and cover with foil. You don't want to overcook the chicken. The heat in the chicken will continue to cook the chicken. Turn heat up and reduce sauce to a pancake syrup consistency. When sauce is reduced pour sauce over chicken and serve.
