Tonight I tried (tried, as in I didn't follow the directions properly) the Cherry-smoked pollo a la naranja that Beli recently posted. I used thighs instead of breasts. I wasn't sure what to do with the serrano peppers for the marinade, so I cored and chopped them.

Thanks, Beli. Will definitely be in my "repeat performance" file. :woohoo:
