  1. Your chicken recipe seems quite interesting, and I will try it.

    I can’t even recall if I had anything similar, and I eat a lot of chicken meat weekly.

    By the way, I love garlic and eat it every day. It is excellent and helps to strengthen your immune system.

    I am seeing the recipe contains ¼ cup brown sugar per 8 oz of chicken meat.

    Since I am not a big fan of adding any sugar or other sweet things to meat, do you think I can add a little bit, maybe a teaspoon, or possibly skip brown sugar from the recipe?

    Let me know, please, and thanks for the recipe.

    1. The beauty of making things in your own kitchen is that you can make any adjustments you want!  Leave the sugar out and please let me know if the result was pleasing.  Enjoy!

  2. Can I just say, I love your website. It will help me become a really good cook. I will be sure to try this out in my next dish. I have tried out a couple of foods from your website and can I just say, they tasted really amazing! I will try this recipe this coming weekend. I will be sure to let you know how it goes
