Easier to eat than wings, but with the same zing! These are pretty mild, so if you like it hot, you might want to adjust the hot sauce and cayenne.

These were quite good and very easy! I seasoned them with a heavy hand and added a bit of cumin. I used half the recipe for one large chicken breast and I would have had enough stuff for another the same size, but I don't know if the recipe would quite be enough or 4 chicken breasts - maybe three. Thanks for posting!
