Polynesian Chicken

I am joining in with Around the world in 12 Dishes this way. They are currently visiting French Polynesia, and as this is such a stunning destination I thought it would be a good place to hop on board. And yes I did have to look up French Polynesia – my geography is shocking.

If you haven’t heard of this link up then it is a journey around the world loosely following Phineas Foggs voyage exploring 12 countries with our children and cooking a dish with them.
