"This is my adaptation of a Cuban-style marinade recipe for pork - I use it for chicken and think you'll agree that the results are moist, tender, and delicious."

The marinade is excellent. It thoroughly flavored the chicken, and is wonderful if you like chipotle. Though it's not for the faint of heart; 1 tsp of chipotle powder made this a bit too spicy for my girlfriend. This recipe could be improved by some form of complimentary sauce. We attempted making a reduction of the marinade but it was, again, a bit too spicy for some. I personally loved the flavor and found the spiciness acceptable.

The recipe only calls for 1/4 teaspoon of chipotle powder NOT 1 teaspoon--that may be the reason why ThomasG's girlfriend found it too spicy.

My family and I realy enjoyed this recipe! I could not find chipotle powder so I used chipotle sauce. I would make this a regular in my kitchen.
