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.

This is really delicious and comes out an interesting bright yellow colour! Great presentation when served with green and red vegies eg: steamed brocolli and peppers -or- salad leaves and cherry tomatos. Could you post some other Donna Hay recipies Marli?
