    I’ve been making this for many years. When my friend gave me the recipe it was so good we made it 2 nights in a row. My version calls for freshly grated ginger and that’s what I use. It’s always in the grilling rotation. These ROCK!

    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.

    Such a great flavour combination. I heeded alligirl's advice and cut the amount of cayenne way back - which was a good thing...about 3/4 tsp of cayenne was plenty spicy for my heat-challenged family. Thanks.
