Flavorful way to grill chicken. Don't be afraid of the peppers and hot sauce - the taste after grilling is still relatively mild. Please use free range chicken if your market carries it fresh. Goes perfect with brown rice and grilled zucchini.

Quartered the recipe (1lb bs breasts) and used 1 jalapeno instead of 1/4 serrano. Juicy but not as flavorful as we were expecting with all the interesting ingredients. Read More

The family wasn't overly impressed. The resounding response I heard was that it tasted like alcohol and not in a good way. With all the powderful flavors of garlic serrano thyme and lime we were expecting more of a punch and less of an edible drink flavor. This isn't the chicken for us. I scaled for 1 pound of chicken and used boneless skinless chicken breast strips. Read More
