My family really enjoyed this tasty recipe! Even my husband, who isn't crazy about spicy food , loved this because the sauce helped to diminish the heat. Our grill wasn't working so I broiled it in the oven for 6 mins each side and it was perfect. I will definitely make this one again!

When I made this for the first time my husband raved about it. This is his first request when I ask what he would like for dinner. The sauce mellows the heat from the spices. We baste once we flip the breast once. I used miracle whip instead of mayo added a little sweetness. Leftovers are great on salad for lunch the next day.

This has an incredible flavor. You need to like heat though. I did not use the basting sauce because it just didn't sound appealing to me. I do not like vinegar at all, and I figured it would be overwhelming. I could be wrong, but I still didn't try it. :( I will definitely make this chicken again!! We loved it!

A lot of ingredients compared to how I usually cook for sake of time, but well worth it. Basting the chicken while cooking really helped keep it moist.

The spices on the chicken were pretty good but I didn't care for the mayo vinegar sauce ... next time ill skip that part.

I made a large batch of the spices and keep it in the cupboard, so it's easier to make often. However, I don't baste the chicken during cooking. I simply use the sauce as a dipping sauce.
