I served this chicken to some friends and we all absolutely loved it even my manwas pretty impressed with my cooking. I didn't find it to be bland at all. It had just enough kick to be pleasant!

I didn't think this was spicy at all and I couldn't really taste the strawberry flavor. I thought it was a little bland.
