    Sue Lau's Note:

    These are so savory, really spicy too! If you don't like them so hot, you can cut down on the pepper in the recipe but that red pepper doesn't hurt that bad! ;)

      These were so tasty. However, I used turkey breast instead of chicken, and I used flour for the breading instead of the breadcrumbs. The turkey breast turned out so moist and flavorful. We will be having these often! Made for ZWT5, the Saucy Senoritas!

      These were very tasty. They will have a regular spot in our meal plan. I have a relatively high tolerance for spicy foods and I thought they were good. Definitely spicy and probably too spicy for many folks. But we loved them. The only thing I had issues with was that the bread crumbs (I used dried bread crumbs) didn't really stick to the chicken as much as I would have liked. Next time I'll probably dip the chicken in some egg to help the crumbs stick better.
