The chicken comes out super in this sauce. Make sure to drain the chicken after browning for a few minutes on each side as the remaining juices from the chicken are released during baking and the sauce doubles. I noticed that if I hadn't done that then the sauce would have been too watery. I followed the recipe exactly and mine came out perfect, not too sweet, not to vinegary, not too sour. If you have concerns around the sauce being too "vinegar-y", keep it at a low-med heat in the sauce pan in the meantime while you are browning the chicken. This will burn off and thin out some of the vinegar's tangy taste, but still leave an undretone of it which is required for this recipe.
After I tasted this I realized it would be a great sauce for pulled pork, or really any meat in a slow cooker. For pulled pork I would probably double or triple the brown sugar though to complement it more than the chicken requires.
As far as the taste of this sauce, it reminded me of the sauce used in Lloyds Barbeque Ribs that you buy ready made at the store. I love that particular sauce and I have finally found a recipe that I can use and save the money from buying Lloyd's ribs just for tasting that great sauce.
This is a great addition to my recipe collection, will make it one of my regulars. Thanks!! A+
