    Very good, but I'm going to try baking it on a rack or broiler pan next time because the chicken ended up sitting in a puddle by the end of the baking time. - 3/15/13

    I added plenty of Portuguese spice - equally good would be Cajun spice. Guests enjoyed this very much - 7/10/12

    Sounds delicious -- what's in Portuguese spice?
