Great chicken and slaw. We are fond of Szechuan - this marinade is awesome, made for wonderful chicken skewers! Followed recipe exactly with an eight hour marinade - this marinade so good I have more plans for a variety of chicken and meat cuts that will make for some great summer cookouts. Only change next time around ... is to double the recipe! The Sinapore Slaw tasted as good as it looked and so crispy - loved the touch of the Chinese chili sauce and the curry. Thank you for posting - it's already in my favorites.

This was an exceptional marinade for the chicken...I had used chicken thighs though, just personal preference. They were so moist and full of flavor. We all loved them and there was none left. I followed the recipe as is for the chicken other than using the thighs. I didn't get a chance to marinade them overnight but they had the whole afternoon and it seemed great. I probably had more than 1kg because I had managed to feed 5 people and we each had 2 long skewers each. I didn't get a chance to make this coleslaw to go with it though being that I wasn't home and I would of needed to buy too many ingredients and I didn't have a chance to go back to the store. But I will try it another time because it does look tasty. I had served it with my home made coleslaw and macaroni salad and it really all went together so well. Sorry I didn't get a chance for a pic, I totally forgot and when I remembered they were all gone.... But I will be making these again because they were really fast to throw in a baggie to marinate....with delicious flavors....Thanks for sharing your recipe Flying Chef, we totally loved it....
