1/2 cup red wine vinegar

Mix first section of ingredients together and marinate 8-12 hours in refrigerator. I find it easy to put it in a plastic bag and take out all of the air. I move the bag around about every 3 hours, just to circulate the marinate.
Before baking, spread chicken mix on baking pans. Sprinkle brown sugar over mix. Sprinkle white wine over mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes. Baste during cooking.
Leftovers make a great addition to spaghetti sauce.
