Fantastic!!! Both toddlers loved it! I love that you could easily change the spice level by using a different salsa. Definitely worth making again!!

Made this for the first time the other night, thanks to awesome books. Was lush and really easy to make, which I like. Have put on my future meals menu planner on the fridge.

Looking through the book, I came across this recipe, and all the ingredients were ones we generally eat – just not altogether.
Thinking I might give this a go, we had it with drumsticks as that was what I had in the fridge, and was incredibly surprised at the taste of the sauce.
A really lovely combination of ingredients that work really well together
Will definitely be making this again and cant wait to try it with the thighs as suggested in the recipe
