We ate this as a main dish instead of an appetizer. It served two people with a little left over. It was wonderful sweet yet spicy at the same time. It makes plenty of sauce which you can use over side dishes. The veggies and couscous we ate with it tasted great with the sauce! Highly reccomended! Read More

Expected to love it...it was "okay." Served as main dish on rice. Don't sell "chili sauce" here but used tomato sauce and added garlic and vinegar as substitute. Might depend a lot on the quality of your preserves and chili sauce. Read More

I changed up this recipe a lot but the result was delicious! I added fresh green beans garlic onion green and red bell peppers cayenne pepper sesame seeds and crushed red pepper to the recipe and served it over whole grain rice. I also used twice the amount of pineapple that the recipe called for. It was fantastic! my dish turned out perfectly balanced between sweet and sour but with a little bit of a spicy kick. i will definitely make this again soon! Read More

I made this the other night when my boyfriend and I had another couple over and it was a hit! I served it as a main dish over white rice and it worked very well. It was VERY spicy it may have been the chili sauce that I used. The boys said I shouldnt change a thing but we girls decided another chili sauce would be better next time lol. Loved it just had to have a lot of water on hand! Read More

I added a 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper and a couple of tablespoons of toasted sesame seeds to give it just a little bit of kick. It didn't last long at our party. Read More

So easy and very delicious - one of my family's favorites! I cut down a little on the strawberry preserves so that it is not too sweet and my family and I like it best when I go heavy on coarse pepper. I serve it with a favorite rice dish for a main dish and always double the chicken because the leftovers are great too. Read More
