UPDATE 07/2008: I've been making this for 4 years now, and have a tip for you. I clean and trim 2 "super-club paks" of chicken and put 5-6 pieces into four separate ziplocs. I double the marinade, divide it evenly into each of the bags, stick one bag in the fridge to marinate for dinner, and the other 3 into the freezer. Next time I need chicken to grill, I grab one of these and let it thaw in the marinade - Fast and fabulous!! END. This name should be changed to "Easiest Ever Super Tasty Grilled Chicken"!! I have to admit, I was concerned that this might be bland since the marinating time was so short, but I was delightfully surprised. My 9 year old (who "hates spicy food") proclaimed that it was one of his favorite meals. If you're a working mother, this is one of those last minute no brainer meals. If you're like me, and you didn't have time to put something in the crockpot in the morning, or you forgot to marinate something overnight, this is the recipe for you!! And once you have all those spices on hand, you'll have them for a while, so you won't likely to be short an ingredient. This is one of our new standbys!!! Now, if I can just rack up a few more of those... !

I've made this 3 times in the past month - everyone asks for the recipe. The only change I made is decreasing the oil to about 1 1/4 cup, and I used olive oil instead of vegetable. Thanks.

This chicken is so good! I use Cajun Seasoning Mix from this site for the cajun seasoning. Definitely use olive oil vs. vegetable oil. I have made this twice now and it has come out tender, moist and full of flavor each time.
