"That's Alotta Chicken!"

3:17 PM

There was much more than this, but I didn't want to overcrowd the platter.
“REPEAT!” as my husband and I say when we discover a great meal.  This chicken is so tender and full of flavor, all of your guests will compliment the dish.  The soy and cumin are a great combo and the chili adds a great kick!  Be careful not to bring your marinade to too rapid of a boil and you’ll be worry-free!  I wasn’t paying attention and almost burnedt the house down.  Oops.  “Too many cooks in the kitchen!”
