Used different ingredients. Excellent! I've made it several times, my family loves it. The last time I also added 2 chili peppers (chopped) to the marinade, which added some nice heat. Love it both ways!! As suggested, definitely brush off most of the marinade before bbq'ing - 01 Mar 2010
Something else. Absolutely delicious! We didn't use the meat tenderiser and won't in the future. We cut the salt down to 1 tsp. We also used 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper instead of black pepper. Put it in a plastic freezer bag with about 2 kilos of organic drumsticks and squeezed the air out, marinated for 6 hours, then barbecued it over a charcoal fire. A really nice recipe! - 15 Sep 2008
Maybe i should have brushed off some of the marinade but it tasted too much like cumin. I was expecting to taste some of the other spices in the marinade, but alls I could taste was cumin. The chicken was moist, but not what I was expecting. I will not make this again. - 15 Sep 2008
