    justcallmetoni's Note:

    For some unknown reason I recently purchased tamarind nectar on sale. Of course, I then needed a recipe to prepare with it. Originally found on the Internet on the National Chicken Council website, this is my adaptation. While presented to be made with chicken quarters, it also works well with boneless skinless chicken breasts. While quite flavorful, this is not spicy so adjust the red pepper flakes to taste.

      This was a really tasty chicken dish. It was perfect paired with white rice. This chicken was moist, tender and oh so flavourful, the marinade was well spiced and delicious. It was snowing and raining here today, so I baked it in the oven, it was perfect. Thanks so much for sharing this lovely treat.

      We loved this chicken! I skipped the step where you bake it in the oven as our weather was too hot and I wanted to cook everything outside. I just marinated the chicken, as the recipe states, then plopped the chicken on the grill and heated up the remaining marinade in a small saucepan and basted the chicken with that. As for the tamarind...I had tamarind concentrate and wasn't sure how to proceed but after reading the instructions on the bottle, I decided to use just a teaspoon of the concentrate along with about 1/3 cup of water. The chicken tasted great so I suppose that was the right way to go. It had a slightly spicy kick to it and an interesting color from the turmeric. Fun recipe! Thanks for posting this toni!
