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.

Oh wow! This is hot, hot, hot! I am a hot and spicy fanatic, so I had no fear in tagging this recipe. In fact, I used chicken tenders, so I could get more of the hot stuff on every morsel of chicken! I really enjoyed this, but even I think it might be a little "too hot"! (I had to use some ranch dip to tone it down, something I never do!) Overall, I really enjoyed this! It was nice and spicy, perfect for opening my head during pollen season :) Thanks so much for sharing your recipe. Made for PRMR tag.

This was very much like blackened chicken, an old favorite of ours which we made a lot during the 90's. I liked the spices in this although I missed the salt. I think adding that would bring out the savory juiciness of the meat. We did cook this in cast iron on the grill outside to keep the spices from smoking in the kitchen. Thanks for sharing. ~Sue
