A simple sauce for chicken, ready in 40 min start to finish. This recipe is adapted from Spoon River Cookbook, where it is presented as one of 4 steak sauces. I tried it on beef and didn't like it much, but it's tasty with chicken. Next batch I make, I will try over scrambled eggs. Also, the sauce keeps well in the fridge, at least 3 weeks.
