SO GOOD!! We all loved this chicken! I used breasts only, and I also increased the garlic. ( Just personal tastes) This was pretty easy to do, and was a wonderful "fiesta style" version of Fried Chicken. Thanks so much for sharing! Made for World Tour.

Awesome chicken!! I used bonless skinless breast with great results. I love the spice these bad boys had. It only took about 5 minutes on each side for me. Made for ZWT 3!
