Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Sauce Chicken breasts were on the menu tonight. I used the Pomegranate Plum Ancho Sauce towards the end of baking. It added so much flavor. Sometimes I run out of ideas for seasoning, this sauce is a must have for people on the go or those who are out of ideas for a new taste on chicken.
