Tamarind Chicken #Recipe

Have you cooked with Tamarind? It’s a tropical fruit that has a nutrient-rich, fiber-filled pulp. It has a multitude of health benefits. Tamarind improves digestion, strengthens the heart, and treats cough, cold, and asthma, to name just a few. However, I am more interested in using it as a food. The flavor has a unique sour note that balances out the sweet chili sauce in this recipe for Tamarind Chicken. I hope you’ll try it. Tamarind paste is often shelved in the international food section of grocery stores, or you can find it on Amazon.
