      Loved it. I cooked it stove top but think I will like it even more charcoal grilled. Several friends I had over also loved it.

      My mom's been telling me how great this recipe is, for quite a while. (She copied it from the cookbook, for me) Well, I finally tried it, last night, and wow, was she right! I did not use quite as much salt (about 1/4 cup) for the brine, because I have high blood pressure; and, I may leave it out, altogether, next time (or cut it down, even more) I didn't add any extra salt, after cooking, either. The cookbook says to be sure that you don't cut down on the chili powder (even though it sounds like a lot), because it really needs that much, to infuse it with some flavor. I think it's the fresh ginger that really adds to this dish. Whatever the reason, it's FANTASTIC, and so easy! Thanks for posting, so I could pass this on! :-)

      Beautiful recipe, that goes together so quickly! Great meal, if you want to impress someone; I can't wait to share with my friends this summer! The brining method imparts a subtle flavor that comes through in the final dish. This is easy peasy to make, and the end result is succulent! Thanks for sharing a great recipe, Evelyn; I'll be making this again, and soon! Made for ZWT.
