Nandos restaurants has a fantastic sauce and I would love to make it. 
Any chance you can find the recipe for the hot sauce?

Subject: Zehnders chicken seasoning

Uncle Phaedrus-Hungry Browser,

I am looking for the ingredients list of Zehnders chicken seasoning. 
When my husband and I visited Frankenmuth last year for a vacation 
stopover I loved Zehnders buttered noodles which they give the recipe 
for but it says add the chicken seasoning and I have so many spices and 
seasoning I thought to use my own to use them up to keep from going stale.

Thank you
