This definitely is an "Oh WOW!" Outstanding; exquisite; but yes, really labor-intensive. Solely because of that, I will make it again only for a dinner party. It is a delicious appetizer--savory and crispy (my favorite :-)) But it also is just terrific with the sauce. With the sauce, I would serve it with a variety of other dishes as an entree. I did not use the hot chili sauce in the sauce; I did use the curry powder.
