Loved this, spice combination on poultry is perfect. Used chicken instead of turkey. The sour cream sauce I changed slightly-halved the green onion and peppers, and glad I did. Served with recipe#209486. Thank you for a wonderful meal.

These are great! I made a few minor changes to this recipe which we enjoyed by using chicken breasts (instead of turkey), skipping the paprika and fennel (out of) and instead of the green chilies I used 1 jalapeno. I also used fat free sour cream and whole grain pita bread. Great pita sandwiches which we served with fruit salad. Thanks for sharing this keeper which we will be having often!

Halved the spices in the rub (except the cayenne, which I quartered) and the peppers in the sauce, and this was still a super spicy dish!
