This recipe was given to me by my girl friend Mary, and is DELICIOUS....has a sweet and sour flavor. We ate this chicken with brown rice and a green veggie. The sauce is AWESOME over the rice!!!! YUMMY!!!!

I didn't plan on having chicken for dinner today but after seeing this recipe featured as the Recipe of the Day, I took a Cornish Hen out of the freezer to thaw. The sauce is so simple to make with only 5 ingredients, and I had those few ingredients on hand. I had a wonderful dinner with the Cornish hen, rice, sautéed zucchini and onions, and Classic Dinner Rolls. The sauce was not overly sweet like I thought it would be. This would also make a wonderful dipping sauce for fried foods after simmering to cook and hydrate the onions in the soup mix. I could not resist adding some minced garlic and red pepper flakes. This was a little different but really tasty!
