Really enjoyed this recipe! I used 1/2 cup of Grey Goose Vodka (minus a sip). This is a keeper. I also have tried your Steven's World Famous To-Die-For Sour Cream Chicken (see my review for it) and thought it was wonderful! So far you are batting 100. Thanks for another great recipe.

While I was hesitant to use my Kettle One vodka for any thing other than sipping, I wanted to use up some leftover ham. I am so glad I picked your recipe! It was delicious and a keeper for sure.
