Sour Plum Chicken

Yummy Bakes | 1:20 PM |
This is a very delicious and easy to prepare and it goes very well with rice.  I have done this several times but only post it now.  Reason being just too lazy to arrange to take photos or due to poor lighting - photos didnt turn out well so I gave up - and just enjoy and savour this.

Cheah, thanks for sharing.
