Serving Suggestions:

We normally eat ours with green vegetables steamed, sweet potato mash or throw in quartered sweet potato pieces under the chicken and I have been known to add apple pieces quartered to my chicken mixture. You can of course just eat them on their own they are great for feeding the kids at a party as they can walk around eating the chicken legs.

Alternative ingredients or amounts 

3 to 4 tablespoons of Organic Rice Syrup

1/2 a large orange juiced

4 or 5 chopped Tomatoes or 3 Tbsp of tinned diced Tomatoes

1 Apple chopped

1 Tbsp of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar

Play with the ingredients and don’t get stuck on amounts as my kids often end up adding more than I planned and it still turns out yummy….
