Recipe by Marli

I have not tried this recipe yet, but it sounds interesting. Prep time does not include overnight marinating. A Donna Hay recipe

This was a good, easy to follow recipe. The chicken legs stayed moist and the sauce happened quickly. I just think it lacked some flavour to make it a 5 star recipe. Next time I make it, I'll add a couple of tablespoons of fish sauce and finish it with chopped coriander.
