Habanero Citrus Chicken

This is a dish my friend and I came up with.

Here's how we did it:

One family sized package of chicken thighs were marinaded overnight in the following:
2 cups fresh orange juice
1 cup fresh lemon juice,
1 cup white vinegar,
6 habaneros,
1/2 an onion,
6 cloves garlic,

These items were blended and poured over the chicken in a bowl which was plastic-wrapped and placed in the fridge.

The marinade was drained, and chicken was grilled at a low to medium heat.

While being grilled, the chicken was seasoned with this homemade mixture.

1/4 cup chili powder
1/4 cup salt
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon cocoa
1 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon black pepper

When this was done, the chicken was placed in a large bowl, and rolled in:
1/3 cup cilantro
Zest of 2 lemons, and one orange
