      I have been trying to find a recipe for my favourite Chinese dish from my local restaurant, 'Salted Chilli Chicken' but can't find one anywhere. So I refined the search thinking that maybe around the world it's called something different and searched on 'Chilli Chicken'. That led me to this recipe for 'Very Flavourful Chinese Honey Chilli Chicken'. Reading through the recipe, it didn't look like the same dish but not being an expert who am I to tell? So, 'let's give it a bash', I thought, and did! Firstly, I read through the recipe and felt that for the amount of chicken in the dish, four green chilli peppers would be far too hot for my taste so I did modify a little. I used a pre-bought red pepper taste and added one sliced red pepper in place. Everything else was as per the recipe. Oh yes, except I added a few sliced mushrooms and half an onion! (Sorry folks, I do this to all the recipes I see, adapt and conquer! he he). So how did it tase? Wonderful. There are a number of subtle flavours that run through the dish and I am thankful I didn't use as many chillis as I suspect that would overpower the dish, but of course it's each to his/her own. So, all in all, I would certainly use this recipe again, and would also seek out more recipes from Charishma Ramchandani regards Paul Bissette
