    GaylaJ's Note:

    This marinade is adapted from a recipe found in Chile Pepper magazine. Although I found it delicious, I did not find it "spicy", so if you are not a fan of spicy food, don't let the name scare you away. Next time I make it, I will probably add some crushed red pepper to the marinade. Prep time includes 1 hour to marinate, but you will probably want to marinate the breasts longer than that.

      I actually used this marinade on boneless pork chops rather than chicken and it is great on that as well. I placed the meat and marinade in a zip top bag that I froze. I thawed overnight in the fridge before grilling the chops. They have a great flavor that doesn't turn out too spicy for the kids.

      These were just so good! I marinated these for 8 hours. The marinade was perfectly spiced and left the chicken so moist and flavorful. I didn't add anything additional (ok, I put in more garlic!) and loved the recipe just the way it is.

      I made these flavorful breasts to go with your Greek orzo salad for our Labor Day picnic and they were well recieved by all. They had a nice spicy bite to them (I added a bit of crushed red pepper as you recommended) but not over-powering. The spice blend was a pleasant mix of flavors also. I actually marinated them overnight which I think helped to make them even more delicious. We really enjoy your recipes so please keep them coming! ugogirl
