My brother loves this meal. Well, we all did but he particularly likes it. Every time I make chicken now, he compares it to this. He'll say something like "This is good but not as good as that other chicken". This is the other chicken he means.
It is good. Very good.
I would like to play around with the hot sauce. All I had was Tabasco and Franks buffalo wing sauce so I opted for the buffalo wing sauce. It was delicious and slightly spicy. But I would still like to try out something different. My brother will probably yell at me for messing up something already good. Oh well.
I doubled the sauce as we like things saucy and I like to drizzle a bit of sauce over my broccoli. I'm glad I did as it doesn't make a ton of sauce. Make more if you want. I told you, it was good! :-)
