I've made this chicken often since I bought a Better Homes and Gardens special edition cookbook at the grocery store years ago. The sauce is fabulous, restaurant quality! But if your chicken contains a lot of water, (and most does) it will water down the sauce as the chicken bakes and the end result will be far less than spectacular. To combat this problem, I make double the sauce and only put about a third on the chicken as it bakes to get the flavor through it. When the chicken is nearly done, I drain the pan, removing the chicken. Then, I return the chicken to the pan and add the rest of the sauce and let it continue cooking for at least 10 minutes or until the sauce slightly caramelizes.  The result is delicious!
