"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.

This is just the recipe I was looking for! A mexican restaurant where I live serves a dish called Chicken ala diablo and I wanted to duplicate it at home. When I made it I did not marinate the chicken in the sauce, I cut the chicken in strips, like for fajitas, and sauteed them in a skillet, then I just added the sauce to the chicken. You can completely avoid the "buffalo wing" flavor if you use an authentic mexican hot sauce like Cholula. I then serve it with flour tortillas, rice and beans. Homemade salsa and chips. YUMMY!

I am kind of torn as to what rating to give this. The chicken itself turned out fine. The taste of the sauce was basically like a watered down traditional buffalo wing sauce. Since we like our buffalo wing sauce with a fuller flavour, this watered down version was a bit disapointing. My husband basically said that it would have been better (and easier) if I had just poured regular buffalo wing sauce over the chicken. I think if you find the regular buffalo sauce to be too spicy, this would be great to coat either chicken breasts or even regular wings.
