I did this recipe on chicken. It was delicious! There is a recipe for sauce I’m looking for that I had in Toronto. The take out place would brush the sauce on the chicken after it was cooked. It had olive oil as well it was red on the bottom of the sauce when it divided when left sitting. I use to order extra sauce. Do you know the recipe for this sauce??

Can you please let me know what type of vinegar is required for this recipe, is it plain white vinegar?

Hi Leigh-Ann, we always just use plain white vinegar here at home for this.
