You may be asking, "What's a wasakaka?" This savory Dominican sauce is made by blending herbs with garlic, olive oil, and hot chiles. Our version uses oregano, roasted red peppers, and fiery sambal paste for an herbaceous sauce that's just the right balance of sweet and spicy. Try it next to these roasted sweet potato fries and fresh cucumber salad. This is a healthy chicken dinner full of exotic flavors that won't weigh you down.
