Seemed a bit too dry for our taste. Can anyone suggest a good sauce for going on it?

Didn't like these at all. Chicken legs took longer than 30 mins to cook and so everything else was ready too soon. Didn't like the spice mix.

Loved this, done it with chicken thighs. Really juicy & cooked for 30minutes & served with the healthy coleslaw & Gordon Ramsay's oven chips.

Such a yummy way to spice up chicken! I had some fresh chillies from my mum's garden so I added them with a a bit of garlic and some ginger and roasted them in the oven. Delicious!

Made this for dinner tonight it was ok bit bland for me think if I make it again I'll up the chilli powder a good bit. The other half liked it but for me it just lacked some oomph !!

Enjoyed by all at a recent get-together - drinks and party food. Used skinless, boneless thighs and baked in oven at 200 Fan for 20-25 minutes. Tasty!
