  2. This was an awesome dish. I marinated for four hours once wrapped in bacon. For an addition I added piri piri sauce to the marinade.

  3. Hi. This looks yum. I just wanted to check that if I make it for a dinner party, how much earlier do u think I can make it , like a few hours should be OK? And how do u recommend I re heat it so that the sauce and chicken doesn’t dry out.
    Look forward to hearing from u soon
