Notes about this recipe

  • Eat Your Books

    Chicken marinates overnight. Online link is for chicken only.

    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.
