Loved this easy sauce. I reduced the vinegar to 1/4 cup because I wanted to add some fresh pineapple. I didn't bake the tenders just cooked on the stove top and then topped later with the sauce....

Made exactly as written. My husband & I really thought this was yummy. Next time I think I will add some chili flakes to the sauce to give it a little heat as well. Served it with fried rice ...

My family loves this recipe so much they have been asking for me to make it again! It was delicious! Adding carrots, broccoli, onions, etc. would spice it up a bit :)
