Creamed Chicken

@ Xiobao12: You'd be surprised at the flavor vinegar can add to a recipe. "Tangy" is what vinegar is undiluted, but mixed in a recipe it adds an additional layer of flavor that can be quite subtle. Each 'flavor' of vinegar (Red Wine/White/Cider/Balsamic/etc.) add it's own unique 'note' in addition to the 'tang'. My husband's secret ingredient for his amazing Chili recipe? Lemon juice! For eight servings it's about a tablespoon, so in that volume you cannot taste 'lemon', you barely taste any 'tang' but what it does to the rest of the ingredients is amazing. Best, Daren
