Tender chicken in a tasty sauce that unfortunately never got "sticky" for me. I used brown sugar instead of white sugar and sherry instead of wine, but still no stickiness. Oh well, even though the sauce was runny, it still tasted good- salty and sweet, which is always a great combo. Served over spinach fried rice.
