Recipe Notes



To make the following meal, I started preparing the chicken, they were marinated and stored in the refrigerator first.

Then I made the Tamarind Barbecue sauce and let it cool, followed by the Pineapple-Cabbage slaw which I wanted to keep as fresh as possible which meant that the slaw had to be tossed together just before serving. so I sliced, grated the Cabbage and Carrot then refrigerated them, the Pineapple was cleaned but not sliced.

Once I’ve done all of the above, I started with the Yoghurt marinated grilled chicken.

The following chicken strips were grilled using a stove top grill pan.
