    Great recipe! I used 1 tbsp chili powder as another reviewer had, and I think it was the perfect amount. I marinated about 12 hours but I will try overnight next time.

    Excellent marinade. I did make one change, I used a tablespoon of chili powder instead of a teaspoon. I like chili powder and I like this marinade with a tablespoon of chili powder!! Grilled the chicken and it was VERY MOIST. Highly recommend. Made for ZWT6 Voracious Vagabonds.

    Nicely flavored with a kick from the Penzey's Hot Chili Powder that I used in making this dish. I used 6 chicken breast as this recipe makes a lot of marinade too. I marinated them overnight. Made for *Comfort Cafe Summer 2009* game my theme was "Marinades for Chicken" (QI: Lemon Juice).

    This is a fantastic marinade has just the right kick to it. This one will be a regular in my house hold would be great with fish too. Made for Make my recipe # 4 in the Aust/NZ forum.
