Loved the rub and the marinade -- the cilantro in the marinade really adds so much flavor to the chicken. I cut the chicken breasts in half so they would take less time on the grill. That means that I have chicken leftover for a nice chicken-avocado sandwich tomorrow.

This was delicious, i made it for lunch and so easy. Loved the lime and heat. One change i made was subbing Dar Jeerah powder for the coriander and cumin seed which i did not have. Dar Jeerah is a fabulous indian spice 2 to 1 mix of ground cumin to coriander. Makes life easy when both are called for. Oh and bc its freezing here, i made this in the skillet then added a half tablespoon of butter and a couple of tablespoons of water to the left over pan and made a little sauce with the marinade.

Personally, I thought this had just the right amount of heat. And we love "HEAT" here in this house. I cooked it on the grill and let it marinate for 1 hour. You can really taste the cumin so if you are not a fan, cut the amount down or don't make this. :) Very juicy chicken. Thanks for posting.
