I pretty much cut this recipe down to serve 2 by using 2 large chicken breasts. However, that was the only ingredient I reduced, so we had plenty of sauce for both chicken & the brown rice served with it! Very nice recipe & one worth keeping! Thanks for sharing!

The flavor doesn't really sink into the chicken in the short simmer time, but the sauce is simple and tasty, making the whole meal come out good.
