Quick Tips:

1 1/2 cups = 24 tablespoons = 6 servings at 4 tablespoons each (can adjust these numbers depending on how many people you are serving)
You can add this sauce to some grilled chicken breasts for a delicious, flavorful meal.

When you’re grilling or frying meat, try to use lower temperatures wherever possible.This reduces the amount of advanced glycation end products (AGEs), which have been linked to a number of degenerative disease and also place undue stress on the digestive and immune systems.
