I tried this last night for dinner & it was a hit. I've never made chicken this way- it was cool to feel like I could make yummy Chinese take-out. :) I didn't read ahead, so I didn't have time to let the chicken and garlic sit for an hour, but I just went ahead and it still turned out great. I used a little less vinegar than it called for because one time I used too much vinegar for a sloppy joe mix & now I'm a little sensitive to it. The sauce was great with the rice & stir-fry. Thanks Jean!
