About this Cook
Well, I used to be a full time sales rep with no family time to speak of. Then I made a life changing decision and became a stay at home mom!!! I never knew what I was missing! Now, I love to cook, sew, and do all the fun stuff that families do.

Chicken Wings Pacifica
Excellent taste, still felt I could have added some herbs for a little more flavor but haven't decided what yet. My husband thought they were perfect. I cooked mine a little different. Per advice of a previous reviewer I tried it stove-top. Sauteed a few onions in the butter, added the chicken to brown, threw in the rest of the ingredients minus the water because the chicken juices replaced it. Simmered about 1/2 hour to flavor the chicken and just before serving, I added 2 tsp. of cornstarch mixed with about a Tbsp. of cold water. Sauce thickened up just enough after about a minute and they were delish!!! Thank you for this recipe!!!! P.S. Would defiantly still be good with low sodium soy sauce but OK without if you like salt. :-)

Vinegar Chicken
This dish had an excellent taste. However, I would (unless you are a vinegar lover) cut the vinegar in half because it overpowers any other taste in the dish. At first it's wonderful but then the strong after taste sets in of vinegar. I did add some basil and sugar as well per another reviewer. Overall very good dish and the chicken was absolutely wonderful. Nice and tender.

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.
