2. Let the sauce cool.

What a lovely site! I found it because I was looking for a recipe for honey glazed chicken, but I went on to read just about all the recipes! I really like the humour threaded through the methods. We love chicken liver but I would never have thought of it as a BBQ possibility, I will be trying that as I can imagine how that could work really well, thanks for the education!

Sarah Jane Wilkinson:

I really enjoyed looking at all the recipes.

I was looking for a sauce to go with my Thai Chicken Cakes which I have made for dinner. The Sour Spicy Sauce will go lovely.

Thank you, I am glad I came across this site.

One of my all time favourite dishes!!
