Very nice flavour but i really like my spice so will add extra chilli kick next time. I made the mistake of draining the juices with 30 min to go to flavour my boiled rice. Dried out the chicken a bit but a good lesson!!

Yummy! I do mine with drum sticks and always forget to marinate. The flavours are good. I must try marinating, when I remember.
