“The original recipe is adapted from "Flip & Easy: One Pot - 55 Easy-to-perpare Recipes" by Paplewick Press (2002). The original recipe would be very peppery. I made a number of changes, (especailly using chicken leg instead of breast) as I think it would improve the texture and flavour. Preparation time not includes the time on marinating.”
