I often think of various sweet and salty combination, as those flavors always lend to limitless possibilities. Growing up, we had chicken 5-6 nights per week...usually the same dish, as my mom would cook for the whole week. Hence my attempt to continuously create variations to a family staple for variety's sake =) —Mariya
