Re: Thai Twisted Lime Chicken

I don't see why not. It's a recipe, not a mathematical equation.

I've not tried this, but perhaps you could try adding sweet peppers instead of chilli? I'm saying that because I've got 3 sweet peppers, and having not eaten them before, I'd like to do something with them.

I'll think of something, just need to do a little research first to find out what they (apparently) taste like.

Re: Thai Twisted Lime Chicken

I've put up a recipe for Sweet Pepper Chicken that might be of interest to you.

I tried three new things today

Sweet Peppers
Wine Vinegar
Star Anise

Not bad going, I'd say.
