  1. I just wanted to know what would be a good side to go with this recipe or sauce. DO you think a sweet sauce would be good. I love your blog and I've made a few things from your desserts sections. I love all your recipes.


  2. Tanya- Just about anything would be fine, mashed potatoes, veggies, anything you'd normally want to serve with chicken. Not sure about the sauce, they are pretty flavorful on their own so I've never felt the need for a sauce.
