Taken from a Healthy Meals in Minutes card. VERY HOT!

Top Review by Debbb

This is really good just WAY too hot! We, especially my hubby, enjoy spicy food but this was too much. I did cut the cayenne in half based on the other reviews but it was still too hot. I will make it again & cut the cayenne down even more because there really is a lot of flavour & the chicken cooks perfectly with this method.
