This Caribbean chicken tastes so good because of its tasty little sauce! Made from apple cider vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar, chilli, garlic, ginger and all spice. Such a simple dish that’s packed full of flavour.

Ingredients

Apple cider vinegar

2 tbs

Soy sauce

1 tbs

Brown sugar

3 tsp

Fresh red chilli

Instructions

  1. Combine vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, chilli, garlic, ginger, allspice and half the shallot in a jug. Set aside 1 tablespoon of sauce mixture for lentils.
