  1. This is a great recipe. Couldn’t find Franks sauce so had to substitute with beerenberg hot tomato sauce. Will definitely look wider foe Franks sauce and do this again

  2. Great, the whole family enjoyed! I wasn’t able to find Franks sauce so I used another spicy tomato sauce but I also added 1dl of cooking cream and it turned out to be perfect.
    Love this site!

  3. A disaster for me unfortunately, halfed all the ingredients, had the chicken cut into small strips and used a different brand of hot chilli sauce (Hoy Fung Sriracha) as I didn’t know of the sauce listed. Found the amount of flour to be excessive. This was the first slow cooked meal I’ve made that I couldn’t eat. Would love to hear what others did to create this dish? If I tried it again I would use a fraction of the flour and use a completely different type of sauce.
