"Oh these are so good if you like spicy! I used the half teaspoon of cayenne pepper this was too much for my granddaughters, but for the adults it was perfect. I look forward to making these again."

"The marinate is delish. I did not follow the cooking method; instead I baked it at 375 deg F for 15 minutes and then broiled it for a few minutes to get the char taste. All my New Years Eve party guests loved it."
