Felt the chicken could have been cooked for a little bit longer, used chilli powder as cooking for children, but it was enjoyable and will make again, but will add lime juice to add some more tang!

Was slightly worried after reading the first two comments, but I'm with alexmasters91, it's very tasty. Couldn't find lime marmalade so used lemon and was very happy with the results. Will definitely do again.

This was a really bad recipe, nobody in my family liked it. This picture above, is not what will happen if you follow the recipe. Mine was brown from the all spice, and swimming in loads of liquid and tasted disgusting.
