    Chicken marinates overnight. Online link is for chicken only.

    The salad and chutney were fantastic - hot, spicy and fragrant. The chicken was nice but I thought a little disappointing - I couldn't really taste the lemongrass, Thai basil or lime.

    I really enjoyed this recipe. Unfortunately, I was unable to make the chutney because I was unable to locate the tamarind that I was certain was in my cupboard. I’m sure that the chutney would have been a wonderful addition, but the chicken and potato salad were still delicious without it.

    Wonderful recipe. Chicken, with leftover sauce poured over, freezes well and makes lovely sandwich or wrap filling.

    The potato salad is a winner, even if you don't make the chicken. But the chicken is very good. We were left with a lot of leftover pan juices, which I used to cook deliciously aromatic rice the following night.
