      Loved the recipe. I cut it back to 12 oz of chicken - 2 skewers - made the full marinade and added an extra clove of garlic. Baked in the oven at 375F for 25 minutes - The result was lovely moist chicken loaded with flavor. I used 4 large Jalapenos and it was not too hot at all. This is a do again recipe for sure

      This had a very nice flavor. Cooked this on a stovetop grill and can't wait to be able to use the outdoor grill. Thanks for posting this Mariposa! Made for Bargain Basement Tag.

      If you like spicy food, as I do, this has some good possibilities. Was a little worried about the heat at first and found it spicy but not so hot as too be inedible. My greater reaction was that the jalepeno managed to overpower all the other flavors. Couldn't taste the juices, garlic or my lovely Hungarian paprika. Thinking with a bit of retooling this could be really great. Thanks Mariposa.
