Good recipe. I added a couple twists since I made the nuggets from scratch instead of using premade and added fresh thai chili peppers.

It was good. I added red peppers and doubled the sauce. I didn’t use Popeyes chicken just chicken nuggets with a nice batter. I did alter the sauce by adding more hoisin, soya, chili flakes and sweet chili sauce...ok I gues that’s a lot of modifications

Really good. Will add a bit more hot pepper next time. Would like it a bit hotter. Also, will double recipe to coat chicken more thoroughly
