This was worth it. We thought it might be better with rice wraps like crisp duck as an alternative. The sauce was worth the wait but a little strong for my 8yr old but I put the sauce on the side instead of mixing through so no drama. May be my turkey was a monster 'cos we have enough for another meal :)
