      Southern Living knows how to pick a winner - know I picked one with this recipe! Cut the recipe back for two - followed through as posted. Love this combination - so like the kind favoured here on the prairies. How good - it's on for our next gathering.Also thinking to slicing and threading chicken breast onto skewers, with that sauce it will make one wow of a starter or appetizer for our summer cookouts. Thank you Sharon. Made for the Auz/NZ August swap.

      I scaled back for 2 but my deli girl had a wee counting problem I asked for 4 thighs but ended up with 5 and then after I made up the sauce mix I realized I used a 1/3 cup measure instead of a 1/4 cup but it still turned out great and all cooked up in less than 30 minutes and with cooked rice reheated in the microwave was a quick and easy and very enjoyable meal, thank you Sharon123, made for Name That Ingredient tag game.

      I made this for dinner last night and although it does have a small hint of barbecue, it tasted more chinese to me. I served it over vegetable fried rice and it was pretty good! Cooking it in the sauce, really soaked into the chicken and gave it great flavor. It was just a touch tangy for me. Probably because I was thinking of it being more barbecue than it was, but it was still good and Im sure I will make it again sometime.
