I made this yesterday and it has become my favourite. it was so easy to make, but the taste is just fantastic. It is so healthy because you are baking them and the chicken was so juicy.
I served it with gherkin mayonnaise, i am recently addicted to this gherkin they are so delicious, i cannot stop eating them all by themselves..When i was looking for a dipping sauce to serve this with, i thought of making a gherkin mayo with red chilli sauce and some sugar to balance all the tartness. It turned out yummy..
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
