    Excellent! I used 6 chicken thighs, keeping the marinade amount the same. I chose to grind my chili powder after roasting the peppers and selected one ancho and one mulato. Excellent choice. I also smeared the marinade on the chicken about an hour before cooking. The chicken thighs took longer than indicated: 55 minutes. Loved the complexity of flavor for so little effort.

    Excellent taste using chicken thighs cooked with charcoal grill. Added the grated rind of orange along with the juice to the wet rub.

    I coated my chicken pieces with the rub/marinade and roasted them in the oven at 450. I basted halfway through with the remaining marinade, and at the end I turned the heat down to 400 because the marinade was starting to burn. Verdict: delicious! I'm sure this would be even better cooked on a charcoal grill, but as it was we enjoyed it.
