Sweet and tangy sauce that is super easy to make. We used the sauce for a stir fry of sorts, pouring it over broccoli and pan seared scallops. Very tasty.

Easy sauce to make; Light; Sweet and Tangy; My Husband and I enjoyed this recipe very much. Using it in chicken sounds good also.

This sauce is delicious! It is sweet yet has a tangy taste to it. The first time I made it, I made it with shrimp like it is originally made for. Then tonight I made the same exact sauce with chicken drummettes instead. I had to double everything so that I had enough sauce bt it was delicious, and very quick to! The family loved it!
