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!!

Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe Kona K. Made as written, but changed the amount to 1 tbsp for the chili powder, as the one I use is hot. We really enjoyed this Hot n Spicy tender chicken. I marinaded for 5 hours, it was perfect for us. Made for Whats on the Menu? Tag Game 2015.

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.

Let me first say that I had to take a few liberties with the method behind this recipe since I completely forgot to coat the chicken with the rub 8-10 hours before dinnertime. I used 1/4 tbs of cayenne and used minced, fresh garlic instead of powder...put all the spices into a bowl and added 1 tbs soy and 1 tbs rice wine vinegar and made a paste. Massaged this onto each chicken thigh really well, then grilled. Really, really good! Glad I didn't use more cayenne...had just enough zip at the end. Will make again and again- really something special. Thanks!

OKAY - when I first tasted the coating after baking this, I thought "OMG - this is SO hot I will never be able to eat it" - I had even cut the cayenne to 1/2 tablespoon. Well, I was wrong. These chicken thighs are DELICIOUS ~ just like Kona said, tender and juicy on the inside, with a crispy, spicy coating that seals the moisture in. The heat mellows as you eat the chicken ~ just don't lick the coating :) HOT HOT HOT !! Loved them, sorry I only made 4 thighs - will definitely make again, so easy to prepare. Made for Spring PAC 2010!
