  1. Thanks for the recipe, YYYYYUUUUMM!!! I wanted to share this, whenever I have any kind of chicken, with it I have this drink called purple. You must have heard about it since it's doing a lot of rounds in the celebrity circuit and is all over the news. Its tastes amazing with chicken, try it and let me know if you liked it or not. It is a health drink which is made up of 7 fruits juice and is high on antioxidants and you know about antioxidants right? it prevents premature ageing, what else do growing women want huh, LOL!! If you want more information to check whether what I am saying is right you can get it at . You can get it at GNC and drug stores.
