    It was so delicious and juicy but we had to cook for 40 mins at 425 to get the chickens core temp to 165 degees. We have a gas stove.

    Great! I followed the recipe...the only changes I made were I did half paprika half smoked paprika, and I used herbes de Provence with Lavender instead of just thyme. They came out juicy and tender. Would make again. I didn’t have cayenne so I used McCormicks Coarse Ground Pepper and that was plenty spicy.

    Excellent! Added just a bit more cayenne for some extra kick.

    It is really tasty ❤️! I will definitely make again but scale back a little on the salt. I had to double up on the seasoning because of XL chicken breasts.

    Turned out great - perfectly cooked and juicy! A little too spicy for our tastes but otherwise perfect

    Delicious but try to not add too much cayenne 'cause could taste very spicy.

    this was very good. just made a few small changes, brined the chicken for a couple of hours prior to cooking and instead of cayenne i used and indian spice that gave this chicken a serious kick. the chicken came out way better than i thought it would and oh boy was it juicy and tasty. gotta try this again. fyi made it with a side of panko crusted mac and cheese.

    Very tasty! I had mixed dry spices with the oil in a ziploc bag and placed chicken in bag and marinated for 20 mins. Then placed chicken in oven as directed. It was so juicy and delicious. I’ll make again!

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