    bayou-mimi's Note:

    Flavorful and spicy, it's one of our favorite ways to fix chicken these days. It's especially handy when you mix it up the night before,and marinade overnight. I found this on the web somewhere, and have thanked the person who posted it each time we have it. I usually serve it with Black beans,yellow rice and a fruit salad with mango, strawberries and kiwi.

      I marinated bone-in chicken thighs overnight then put the entire thing in the crock pot on high for about 2 hours, then reduced to low for another 2 hours. Served it up at my Mayan supper over the weekend and got lots of requests for the recipe. Yummy!

      Simple and very tasty. More of a marinade than a paste. I used one habanero, seeded, and fresh oregano from the garden. Marinated about 20 legs and BBQ'ed them. Very very good! If anything, could have been a bit spicier for our tastes. Marinated for 2 hours. Next time I will plan ahead enough for either a longer marinade period, or go with 1.5 habaneros. Update. After trying a few times, I use the entire habanero. Seeds and all. Also, 50/50 mix of orange and grapefruit, with orange zest added. Combined with a 6 hour marinate, that seems to work great
