I marinated my chicken in the sauce over night before cooking. It was a hit with my hubby, who is a very picky eater.
Delicious, savory, and juicy chicken. We all loved it! Because of the reviews regarding the cardamom, I used about a 1/2 teasp. and the flavor was wonderful! Thanks!
Loved the dish. Easy to prepare and we liked the flavors. Bar-b-qued it. Only thing I changed I did not remove & cover with foil to continue cooking because this would only steam it. I made a foil tent over it and it cooked as it should - also cooked it a little less as I don't like dried out chicken.
