    It was a good choice. However, if i makenthis next time, ill have to adjust some of the spices and maybe cook it in the pan first, then throw itbin the oven. I didn't season all of the spots and i had some with flavir and some without. Ill try it again!

    Too Hot! Too salty. I did brine the meat the night before but next time I make I will do 1/2 the salt and 1/2 the cayenne. The flavor profile is good but a little over the top for chicken in my opinion when it comes to the heat.

    Great spice blend. Learn from my mistake and don’t double the cayenne. It’s hot enough!

    Tasty! A touch too spicy for my kid, but that’s a preference thing. I’ll reduce the cayenne next time, but I will definitely make it again. It’s very easy! Thanks for sharing.

    I meal prepped this dish so I doubled everything from the chicken to the spices. I added a little extra cayenne and meant to saueeze a lemon over the finished chicken. I was impressed by the simplicity it took to make such a delicious dish.

    Skipped the cayenne pepper but it was perfect made it with the broccoli and sweet potato. Little tip for a baked sweet potato is add some feta after baking, before serving. Yummy!
