The recipe is really great but the cooking directions for this are extremely dangerous! Putting "fat on the fire" can and will cause a kitchen fire, especially after getting a pan pipping hot. Please, anyone who makes this - be careful!

great recipe for the spice blend... but wow, one CUP of butter?! seriously?! (SERIOUSLY?!) I substituted this with a generous drizzle of olive oil. I put the chicken in a bowl, added the olive oil and the juice of half a lime, tossed things around, then added the spice blend (mixed separately- added 1 tsp sugar to help it caramelize). I rubbed it into the chicken, covered it, and marinated for ~1 hour. ... then I threw them onto the barbecue. turned out beautifully with a lot less fat than the initial recipe would have had.

Yum!!! This was really good... I did make some changes though. I put the chicken and spices in a plastic baggy, shook it around, and stuck it in the skillet with some EVOO. I browned the chicken in the skillet, then finished off the cooking in the oven. Eliminated the smokiness and it was easy to take out of the oven and serve!

I made this with fettucini alfredo and it was AWESOME! A little spicy for some, but I like it that way.

Excellent! I will cut back a bit on the butter next time- don't need quite that much.

Yum! This was very simple and good. I used a combination of butter and evoo and it turned out very good. Thanks MelinOhio for a nice keeper. Made for All You Can Cook Buffet special.

This recipe was supper delish! I did change it up a bit and used EVOO instead of butter to make it healthier.

I used a little less butter and added some pre cooked peppers and onions to the pan with the cooked chicken. It was terrific. I will make it for quests next time..
