    I thought this was a really great recipe. Very easy and quick as well! I let it marinate for about 8 hours and it turned out very tasty. The grill definitely added some good flavor to an earthy combination of spices. Will definitely make again.

    Delicious my family can't get enough of it! I use a whole small roasting chicken. I use the leftover to make chicken rice soup with celery carrots and onion it's delicious!! Highly recommend

    Overall very good. Nice reddish yellow color. Spices were a little different for my taste. Next time I would cut back or leave out the coriander.

    Great ! And kids loved it . Although I substituted coriander (yuk) and put in marjoram leaves, and used minced chill 1/2tsp instead of cayenne

    Turned out delicious. Very flavorful, but not spicy. I used boned chicken instead of breast because that's what I had on hand.
