The chicken was very flavorful and tasty, thanks for the recipe :) We used the legs and fillet and grilled Peko (without pre-frying). The meat was fine - marinated, fresh and fragile, but we had a problem with the sauce - from dry spices (I guess) became bitter, I hoped that the boiling will be fine, but continue to bitter. We put him canned crushed tomatoes to dilute it helped a little, but still leave a bitter aftertaste. Posgastihme it a bit on the stove, then stirred with yogurt and get pretty decent sauce. Have remained bitter sauce (without yogurt) and intend to try pizza accept proposals and how else can use it :)
