    Ok, flavors not as present as I would like. Need to adjust some things 🤔

    Great recipe and easy to do. I would add a teaspoon of salt more than what it says.

    Made it with some garlic powder and honey and it was delicious! My picky 4 year old who never eats much meat asked for thirds

    Soooo very good! I got a little ambitious and added a little garlic and honey to the marinade. Also threw some shrimp in to marinate before grilling; it was all awesome.

    No flavor at all. If naked chicken is your thing, this is the recipe for you.

    Fantastic! We make these every Tuesday for taco night. I marinate before I go to work & fry in the cast iron for a few minutes and they are perfect.

    Nice and easy. We added some lime salt and a bit more spice. Came out great.

    It needed more salt for us. I will double the spices and salt next time and use chicken breast. (My family just cannot get over the gristle...even on boneless skinless chicken thighs.). I only had it in the marinade for 3 hours which was't long enough so I will also do it overnight.

    This was very tasty. I wish that I had more time to marinate more than 2 hours but even still it was pretty good. 7-8 mins each side on the Foreman grill though.

    So yummy and full of flavor. I marinated the chicken overnight. I cooked them in the oven using boneless, skinless, chicken thighs. Popped in 400 degree oven, cooked for 15 minutes one side, flipped and cooked the other side for another fifteen minutes. Will def make these again!
