"This really is simple and sooooo tasty - my three year old ate it with no hassle, so that tells you how delicious this is! I had all the ingredients, but I didn't put the exact amounts of everything - still turned out lovely. Chicken (I used leg/drumstick and thigh pieces) cooked moist and incredibly flavoursome. Very quick to put together, then just leave it in the oven to cook. Highly recommended."

The chicken was very moist and flavorful, the sauce was delicious, and the aroma made the house smell like a festive holiday season. We served it with potatoes instead of rice and are looking forward to trying it with the rice."
