Great recipe! I used 1 tbsp chili powder as another reviewer had, and I think it was the perfect amount. I marinated about 12 hours but I will try overnight next time.

Excellent marinade. I did make one change, I used a tablespoon of chili powder instead of a teaspoon. I like chili powder and I like this marinade with a tablespoon of chili powder!! Grilled the chicken and it was VERY MOIST. Highly recommend. Made for ZWT6 Voracious Vagabonds.
