      This recipe was okay but no one really cared to have it again. I used my own recipes for berbere and spiced butter. It seems like there's too much dry spices, I had to add almost a cup of water extra so that the sauce didn't seem grainy. It was also bitter (maybe from all the paprika in this recipe and the berbere) so I added about 2.5t of sugar.

      This was a huge hit! I did print out the spiced ghee #140755 & berbere sauce #140767 recipe but used them only as flavor guidelines. I plan to one day, make it all properly. Absolutely delicious chicken - thank you, Rita!
