SPICY CHICKEN LEGS WITH MANGO SALAD
COOKBOOK: The Australian Women’s Weekly COOKBOOK: How To Cook Absolutely Everything
Who doesn’t like chicken legs! Here is another combination of spices and herbs for you to marinate your chicken pieces. I left it in the fridge for half hour and straight in the oven. The taste of these legs was mouth watering!
The salad was a bag of mixed goodies! I was sceptical about the taste of mango with the greens but again I loved it.
Well done to AWW for another great recipe!
