i was looking for this recipe and Ree used a half stick of butter which is what the commercial is all about . I was searching for I was searching for Ree's sweet and sour chicken recipe that was a ad for your companies half butter sales pitch. Looks awesome but on this site there seems to be some mistakes. Ree use a apricot jam with ginger and i think sugar?? Not a sauce in a bottle. And she did not use 2 tbs but a half a stick of Butter because that is what the commercial was all about . Selling your half sticks of butter . I only buy your butter and i am i long time fan of Rees blog and cookbooks . Please correct this recipe on your site sticks of butter< it is written out wrong on this website . Plus she mad her own sauce with the apricot jam . So if u are going to have great Food Network stars in your commercial then please match the recipe with the commercial
