Pucker up to a sauce that brights the feisty: cider vinegar, mustard, and brown sugar in perfect proportions, enrobe the chicken with something really special. Tip: For the best consistency to your sauce, very slowly pour in the olive oil while stirring the dressing constantly. This process, known as emulsification, ensures the oil will combine with the other liquids.
