"This is my 1st time submitting a review for an online recipe, although I use them often. This time I was compelled to create a user ID so I could share how well these turned out. I typically find online recipes too bland for my family, this one was an exception, although I did add a half tsp more of every spice in the recipe and more citrus and cilantro. This is a very authentic (at least NA authentic) dish. Tip: marinate the chicken for as long as possible"
