We all have one.

That notebook full of torn out magazine recipes or handwritten gems from family and friends.

I certainly do.
Mine is so stuffed full of these loose pages that it is held together with rubber bands.

Every so often, I wonder if I should write them all down in one place, but then I realise that I need those torn out scraps just as they are.

The original recipe that this one is modified from is instantly recognisable to me because the background is hot pink with a bright blue edge *shudder*
However, I know when I’m shuffling through those papers looking for the right one, to keep an eye out for that flash of hot pink.
Having it written and itemised somewhere just wouldn’t be the same.

This recipe, in its many evolutions, has been in my family favourite top five for about 20 years.

Tender and juicy chicken pieces with crispy, caramelised edges are bathed in a sweet, rich sauce.

It’s fast and so easy to make that your kids can do it, uses basic pantry ingredients and any cut of chicken you please.
I’ve done everything from wings to breasts in this sauce and they all taste amazing.

I always double my quantities so that the leftovers can be taken for lunch the next day.

Give it a go, I’m sure you’ll love it too!

Make it. Post it. Tag me.
