    Turned out phenomenal! I added more paprika and cayenne to make it hot and spicy! Super juicy and tender, will definitely make again.

    The chicken was very moist; however, my entire family had one complaint: Way too much spice covering the chicken. The recipe should be modified cutting the mixture at least in half. I'm vegetarian, so didn't eat it myself.

    Delicious, we don’t like spicy so didn’t add the cayenne and then paired it with Jasmine rice. Will definitely be making again.

    WAY too spicy. Cut the cayenne and chili powders in half, minimum. As someone who enjoys spicy food, the flavor was amazing. What wasn't amazing was having to cook a second round of chicken breast for everyone else to eat so their faces wouldn't melt off. I will use this recipe again, but adjust accordingly.
