Saw chef Richard Blais make this on Dr. Oz today and it looked and sound so good I just to bring over here so that I could give it a try. Times do not include brine, cool time or rest time.

I am not reviewing the sandwich but just the chicken and the sauce which were marvellous. I loved the flavours of the sauce - all that sticky savoury-ness ! Just delightful.!! I added it to mixed greens for a lovely summer salad.
