Recipe by Jubes

Great on chicken-use as a baste for 4 chicken breast fillets or 8 drumsticks Recipe using Aussie tablespoon that is equivelant to 4 teaspoons. You can use other variety of chili if you wish. For gluten-free diet ensure the seasoning/spices used are gluten-free (some spices will have flour added to stop them from clumping)

What a fun, tasty marinade for chicken. I would also use this on pork or even shrimp. DH and I thoroughly enjoyed the combination of herbs and spices. The only change I would make is adding a bit more sugar or honey (maybe 1 tbs. instead of 1 tsp.). Otherwise, it was wonderful. Thanks for sharing!
