Spicy is right! My family is torn on this one. It is definately a healthy dish that is full of flavor. I found the amount of chili powder and chili flakes to be over-powering and bitter. My better half thought it was great. I will say that the onions had a nice texture and the chicken was very moist. Next time I will cut the chili powder and flakes in half and I will also add a bit more vinegar. Thank you for posting a flavorful, low-fat, heart-healthy recipe.****edited to say: I forgot to mention this recipe's greatest feature... the aroma! Our kitchen smelled heavenly for two days!
