This challenge was great for a quick meal. It was flavorful, exotic and normal enough for my dad to like it! At first I was unsure whether I would like the sauces, especially the peanut one, or not. I was surprised to find that peanut and coconut go well with spicy chicken. And the tamarind and pepper sauces were a great alternative for those not fond of peanut butter.
The chicken turned out a bit dry, especially the smaller pieces. I think this might’ve been the result of my no-control-of-temperature oven. To achieve the charred effect I had to keep the chicken in the oven for about 30 minutes. I’m sure the result would be perfect if it had been done on a grill/barbecue. The sauces turned out to be essential instead of an extra.
The peanut sauce was really good and it combined perfectly with the chicken and on top of the basmati rice I made to go along with it.
