Very crisp and tasty main dish or they would also make a nice entree with sweet chilli sauce for dipping.

Yummy, I found some liquid smoke in the US section of David Jones so I had a bottle sitting in the pantry. I used non-alcoholic beer (yes Australian Coopers Brewery Beer sell some) and I substitute a real egg with an egg replacer. The chicken was excellent, really moist and the flavours were outstanding. Thank you again Peter J
