Chicken Pares Recipe

This chicken version of pares is just as tasty!

The delicious combo of sweet and savory is mirrored in this chicken version of the beef pares recipe that we love! You still get the delicious flavors but without the long cooking time necessary to tenderize the beef. Chicken is the quicker cooking meat so you’ll be ready to eat in minutes rather than hours.
