What great chicken! I cut up leg quarters so had a mixture of thighs & drumsticks to marinate and subbed chipotles in adobe for the listed peppers. The smoked paprika & chipoltes added such a nice smoky flavor & the spices are what make this such a great dish. I will definitely be using the recipe again. Made for ZWT7.
OMG, OMG, OMG, this recipe should be right up there in the top chicken recipes on this site-it's SO good! I made about 2/3rds of the recipe with skinless chicken and managed to reduce the oil to 1 tablespoon in the marinade and 2 teaspoons in the frying of the dish (worked perfectly for us).It had around 5 hours marinating time. I live in a land where chillies are just chillies, so used as many as I thought we'd enjoy of some nameless variety (once again perfect). I think the marinade would work well with pork or salmon (a shorter marinating time) and highly recommend ths simple, stunning recipe!
Wonderful chicken recipe! I used boneless skinless breasts and only left "marinade" on for about an hour before cooking and the results were excellent. The spicing on this is so flavorful but not really hot; I didn't use the cilantro but really loved the addition of the mint. Thanks for sharing a great recipe!

thanks for posting this. it was on my pile to post and never got around to it. i made it the same day i saw it. we don't like thighs so i made it i made it with split breasts. really delicious and a true keeper. i have tons of mint growing outside my door, but did not use it, DH and i don't care for it. great recipe!!!!!
This is a definite 10 STARS! Perfectly written and very tasty. The spices were all just right for us. The sauce is great on rice. I am going to use the "marinade" on some thighs and then grill them next time. The cilantro and mint added at the end really set it off. Made for ZWT 7.
Recipe was great, but for me the timings were way off, my chicken was very undercooked, recommend at least 200% of time.
Very good chicken. I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs, but wish I had used bone in after cooking. Think it might have increased the flavor a bit. This marinade is wonderful....I will use it on other meats....I had to use amaheim and serrano, couldn't find the listed ingredients locally. The cilantro added at the end was perfect.

Loved the chicken as much as all the positive comments. Ok, gotta go and hate to break your heart by leaving the party so early, just as we were all getting to know each other. ;-)
Used chicken breast for this and grilled it, per another reviewer's suggestion (so omitted the broth). I also used less oil and skipped the sugar. It came out delicious and very flavorful. The lime and paprika really make it, and also give it a slightly tandoori-type flavor.
This was good. I also thickened the sauce. I made too many substitutes because of what I had on hand. I only had jalapenos and I had no lime juice only lemon. I also did not have fresh bay leaves. My dish was a 4. I would not suggest using lemon instead of lime. Lesson learned, next time I will go the the grocery store.
