    Kona K's Note:

    These chicken thighs are so yummy and easy to make! Perfect for busy weeknights. Just get the spices together the night before, allow the thighs to marinate over-night, and voila -- no need to worry about tomorrow's dinner. I love the spicy and smoky flavors, and the thighs remain juicy on the inside with a nice crispy crunch outside! I haven't tried this with other meats, but I have a feeling this will go great with pork as well!

      Combine cayenne pepper, paprika, garlic powder, chili powder, salt and pepper in small bowl.

      Amazing! I marinated for 7 hours instead of 8. I only made 3 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, and used just slightly less than the spices called for. I used 1 1/2 tbsp chili powder. I loved eating this....the spices made the juicy inside pieces of chicken flavorful and fun to eat. I love heat and spice, so this was wonderful for me! Adjust the cayenne if you aren't into heat. I really enjoyed this different chicken recipe....thanks for sharing!!

      Delish! I used 1T chili powder and about 3/4T cayenne and marinated these overnight. These were pretty spicy even for us, lol. Simple and delicious. Thanks Kona K for a great keeper. Made for Spring PAC 2011.
