      Made half a recipe but didn't fry the chicken. I cooked it in the marinate and then served with the sauce, rice and salad. Great meal.

      Although this appears to be a lot of directions, and if I had read the recipe more thoroughly initially, I would have noticed the marinating instructions and realised that this recipe requires a bit of planning ahead, once you get down to it it comes together easily and really is delicious, we loved this. Quite sweet, so you need to expect that. We dont generally eat fried food, so this was a treat, but also a bit heavy on the tummy if you over-indulge!!! I served this with steamed rice, and we really enjoyed it, made for PAC Fall 2012

      This is an excellent sauce, and easy to make. I used a different recipe for the chicken, so I can't comment on that, but the sauce is fantastic. I highly recommend it.
