Mahogany Chicken Waves

If you have been following me for a long time you’ll know I love the Practical Gourmet Small Plates For Sharing book. I’ve fallen in love with many of the recipes I’ve tried….well until now. I finally found a bad recipe. I was so grossed out and upset with the results I forgot to take pictures of the finished dish! You know I’m all for trying new things, but this combo was just no good at all. I think the cocoa was the problem, it made it taste burned and really made the flavor bad. Oh well, have to hurry and make another recipe from the book so it can redeem itself haha.
