Introduction

I found this recipe on Shine and thought I'd try it. It didn't sound too bad for my family (except the sodium of course), and it was a hit!! Full of sweet flavor. The sauce can be used with chicken too! I found this recipe on Shine and thought I'd try it. It didn't sound too bad for my family (except the sodium of course), and it was a hit!!
