Quite easy -- do ahead
Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This can easily be divided in half. If leftovers, they freeze beautifully so make enough for another dinner. Great for a dinner party as so much is done ahead. You can even marinate one day, cook the second day, and warm up on the day of serving -- flavors only get better !! If I cook it ahead, I put the brown sugar and wine on it when I reheat it -- works fine. Serve with some good bread to sop up the juices.
