Deanna Passero Suppes 2

"This Spanish chicken dish was a hit with me and my husband who love spicy food. This recipe tastes similar to buffalo wings, but without all the calories. The leftover chicken can be used chopped over salad greens too."

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the hot pepper sauce, sour cream, ketchup and honey until smooth. Season with paprika and cumin. Set aside half of the sauce for serving later, then place chicken breasts in the remaining sauce to marinate. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and cook until fragrant. Place chicken breasts coated with marinade into the skillet, and cook until nicely browned on each side, and meat is cooked through, about 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, heat reserved marinade in a small saucepan or in the microwave. Serve chicken breasts over white rice, or over salad greens with sauce spooned over the top.

Read the reviews and decided to use Cholula mexican hot sauce, instead of a hot pepper sauce so it would have more spanish/mexican flavors. Added some diced jalapenos to sauce. I too chose to ...

Wow! this recipe is excellent. It tastes very much like Peri Peri that I tasted in South Africa, I believe peri peri originates from Mozambique. I found it very good without putting the sauce ...

Very Yummy! This recipe was easy to make and both my fiancee and I really enjoyed it. We had it over yellow rice (saffron rice). I also added a little cayenne pepper to the recipe for an extra k...

I thought it was pretty good, but something seemed to be missing. My kids didn't like it. They thought the sauce was too spicy. They ate it after I took off some of the excess sauce.

Made as is the first time and enjoyed it. On my second attempt I sauted some sliced shallots along with the garlic. Then added a few dashes of balsamic vinegar to them before adding the chicken.
