    pretty spicy and tasty chicken dish, and super easy. use a little more of each spice to make sure the chicken coats well.

    Tastes great! A little on the spicy side for me, but a little BBQ helps. :)

    We really enjoyed this, but I cut the cayenne and salt in half. It was delicious!

    The chicken has just the right amount of spiciness if you don’t add black pepper! I thought it was a little salty, so I’ll use less salt the next time. Very easy to make and will definitely cook it again.

    Enjoyed the spicy taste of the chicken. Served with streamed zucchini.

    My husband is picky but he liked it!!!! We both think the spices would be good with fish... blacked catfish, etc! BTW - I used chicken breast strips and pounded them thinner, only cooked for 20min, since they were so thin.

    Worth checking it a few minutes before the time is up.. was just a little overdone when 20 minutes hit. Otherwise, tasty chicken and quick recipe overall!

    This was so easy to make and so flavorful! My husband said he likes well seasoned chicken and this was definitely well seasoned. I would personally cut back on the spice a little bit as it was a little warm for my liking.

    I made this for dinner tonight and it was a hit! The chicken turned out perfectly. Crisp outside and juicy on the inside! The family said that this one is a do again

    My family loved this, even my picky kids! I subbed chili powder for the cayenne and paprika and skipped the thyme. They were so juicy and flavorful!

    It was very simple but the thyme and oregano was very strong and tasted a little odd with the spicier spices. I personally would recommend either not using it or not use as much as the recipe calls for. I also added Creole seasoning instead of paprika.

    it felt like an experiment of spices gone wrong. it looked great, the taste was too much.
