Delicious recipe. Super easy. I substituted shallots for onions as it was what I had on hand.
Make sure you stir the mix occasionally during the simmer or you run the risk of caramelizing sugars on the bottom of the pan. Some people don't like that (I do).
This recipe is an invitation to mess with the ingredients. I ended up doubling or tripling the garlic, too. It is also delicious with a dash of Worcestsire. The basic prep and ratio of sweet to sour are all that matter. Beyond that, you can be entirely creative and end up with something delicious!

Excellent recipe. One suggestion; add the volume of tomato products to be used. Pretty easy to overwhelm with too much!
Made this with an old laying hen from the farmer's market. I added one cup of red wine, but otherwise stuck to the recipe.
Results were delicious over rice. With the wine, there was enough liquid that I deboned the cooked chicken back into the pot and served it as a near soup stew.
Will definitely make again!!
