      I made this for Zaar Stars and I loved it. Nice and spicy, and very quick to put together. I did cut the cayenne to about 2 teaspoons and it still had a nice zing.

      Great spicy chicken! I made just as directed and grilled over charcoal. I liked the peanuts on this and wished I had made a peanut dipping sauce to go with (next time!). Thanks for sharing your recipe!

      These were very good. I'm not sure if 2 T. of cayenne powder is correct.? It seemed like way too much, and I do like spicy. I cut it down to 1 t. and it was plenty to make the chicken spicy. I enjoyed that this was a simple grilling recipe. Thank you. Made for ZWT7 for the Golden Gourmets.
