    Made this for tonight's dinner. I made some minor changes. I used 1/2 a tablespoon of paprika for the non spicy lovers, and i used sea salt to make it sodium free, and heart healthy. My husband has high blood pressure so i do most of my cooking with sea salt. It was tasty and full of flavor, even with the minor changes I made.

    I made this last night on a whim hoping it would was outstanding and the flavor was great! Maybe I just have a well balanced palette for flavors...but I could taste each of the ingredients with every bite!

  • Just okay

    Seasoning was just okay, nothing to get excited about.

    Tried this dish yesterday with my husband. The chicken was not bad, had a hickory flavor from the grill. My husband, a picky eater, liked it okay. Next time, I think I will cook it in a pan.

    We made this dish with Drumsticks instead. It was really good, all the flavors blend very well. We also used a pan (no grill) with a little drizzle of Olive Oil. Last, we let the chicken soak in Red Cooking Wine (Pompeian/Marsala) and it added a extra kick to the flavor, it helped to stick the rubbing on the chicken.
