This turned out REALLY well and very juicy. I cooked it a little longer, and I used about 1/2T of chili powder and 1/2T of cumin per hen. 1/2tsp of each for 3 chickens was not nearly enough for my family. It turned out just great.

This recipe was the easiest chicken recipe I ever made! I was looking for something quick to prepare but low on ingredients, and this met both requirements. It's wonderfully moist and spicy and we loved it!

This was OK, but we prefer other seasoning compared to chili and cumin.
