  • “We had a little 😳 moment when serving there on the side of the bend was the ginger wine I forgot to add but have to say it still tasted delicious the hint of chilli was just right with all the other flavours, cooking time was perfect and there was heaps of liquid left in the pan.I just poured the sauce over the pan in which I initially browned the chicken and took it from there, thank you Jan great little recipe, made for Make My Recipe – Spring Edition.”
