This made for a pretty tasty sauce over our chicken. I wasn't sure if chili powder meant the Mexican style (milder with added herbs and flavours) or the hot red Indian sort. I used the hot one, but reduced it to a teaspoon which was perfect for us. I only had a few pieces of chicken so have lots of sauce left over. It will be great on burgers and sausages too I reckon.
