Another one to add to the favourites list. Flavours are absolutely amazing. I did add capsicum & shallots about 3.5 hrs into cooking. Skimmed fat off the top regularly & thickened at the end with cornflour. 5 stars🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I tried this last week and it will definitely be a repeated dish in our house! I used assorted cuts, doubled the sauce (except for the soy), put in the oven at the end to brown a little while I thickened the sauce! Loved it!!!!

Thank you SO much!

This recipe really is magnificent. Personally in my top 4 finds on this site. So easy and so tasty!!! And this time I got organized and allowed some sauce thickening time at the end. That worked really well with a bit of cornflour. Yesterday I had to use boneless skinless chicken thighs as I had these leftover. They weren’t the biggest and I wish I’d dropped cooking time to 4 hours. They were still lovely…there are never leftovers when I do this and I’m yet to have the patience to take a photo…I just want to eat them asap!!

The kind of recipe I’d give 10 stars if I could!

Cooked this for the first time yesterday. It was easy and delicious. Thank you for the Recipe Paulene, it is magnificent.
I did remove some of the oil from the SC at the end and thickened the sauce. My Family are all over full and moaning on the lounge. A total success.

I cooked this for the first time today and it was excellent. I drained a bit of the oil on top and thickened to make a delicious sauce. Served with fried rice. No one can move cos they are so full. Thank you for this easy and delicious recipe.

Magnificent and wanted to do it again almost immediately!! A very easy prep. A very easy cook and baste. An extremely delicious result. So good all my family wanted more (including the fussiest teenager in the world). Without doubt I’m doing this again soon. Thanks Paulene.

My leaning tip for next time – be prepared to thicken the sauce at the end, before serving. I couldnt wait any longer and just went for it. Even in the leftovers.

Forgot to say it is gluten free for coeliacs using gluten free sauces.

This was easy & delicious. Even the fusshy men in the family said it was definitely on the “have to do again” list.

Great recipe. Family gave it thumbs up. Put chicken in oven for last 15 minutes to get crunchy skin. Just so easy and delicious.
