    More Chili powder than my family likes, but other wise very tasty. Easy to make.

    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.

    Turned out ok. Seems like all I tasted was paprika and chilli powder, and I measured correctly. I was out of thyme so Ill try it again, that may have been the problem.

    Delicious! A little spicy with the cayenne, maybe less next time.

    Super easy, pretty good. I found it to be very sweet but that could be because I didn’t have chili powder

    The spices made the chicken kind of gritty? Would not make again.
