Tasty marinated chicken gets a kick from smokey ancho chili peppers. Serve with a mandarin and spring green salad and a good Riesling. Alternately, you can skewer chicken on bamboo skewers which have been soaked for about 20 minutes and cook them over a small flame.

Strange mix of flavours that somehow blend well together. I doubled the sauce because I cooked it in a tagine in the oven with vermicelli rice noodles and vegetables so I needed some extra sauce. If you like spicy food add some fresh hot peppers they won't ruin the dish. The chicken comes out tender and juicy and full of flavour. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

I've made this twice and it's absolutely delicious! The key is making sure the chicken marinates for at least an hour. The flavors blend so well together! I added a tsp of powered ginger and served over a bed of riced cauliflower. Read More
