crushed red pepper flakes

Tasty and moist grilled chicken, but would have liked more of the citrus flavor. Marinated for about three hours, but next time, I'll try putting the chicken in the marinade in the morning for an evening meal.
Tasty, however it really didn't have the wonderful citrus flavor I was expecting - even with 24 hours of marinating. I loved the idea of this, using orange juice paired with lime. I even added a bit of orange and lime zest to heighten the citrus flavor. It's mildly sweet and does have some citrus flavor, but in the end the heat from the red pepper flakes prevailed....
This was pretty good, soft and juicy, although i made a few adjustments to the marinade. I added 1 tsp of cumin and about 3 tbsp of olive oil. I find that by adding a it of oil the marinade and flavors stick to the chicken better. I would make this recipe again it was quite easy.
I thought this recipe sounded fresh and tasty, but the ingredients added little if any taste. Perhaps if marinated overnight? I may try that as I was a fan of the ingredient list.
I used fresh squeezed orange juice and the juice of one lime as my lime wasn't very juicy. Like other reviewers, I added the zest of half the orange and lime. Unlike other reviewers, we did not find this sweet and in fact talked about adding a bit more honey the next time. We found the citrus flavor really was highlighted, but I attribute that to the 10 hr marinate time and the fact that I did used freshly juiced fruit. I think the juice combination would make a great sauce if thickened with a bit of corn starch and boiled for several minutes (or make a fresh juice combination and cook less). We will try that next time.
The chicken was moist and flavorful. Next time we'll make a larger batch of marinade and substitute some marinade for part of the water required to make a batch of (brown) rice. The meal was a 3 due to less intense flavor. With more flavorful rice (than plain rice served with flavored chicken) we'll likely give the full meal a 4 or 5.
Just made this tonight and it turned out great! My family loved it. I used a juice blend I had in the fridge, an orange/mango/peach juice and the half of squeezed lime. The only other thing I changed was the amount of pepper flakes; I used only a dash since my family doesn't like that much heat. Overall, the chicken turned out very moist and it was flavorful. I only marinated it about 1 hour in the fridge.
I think this marinade is excellent! I did use a full lime, though, to bring out some full more flavor. excellent!
