Ryan once said to me “you make a lot of chicken”. I suppose that is true. I do make a lot of chicken. I like chicken. I like chicken curry, fried chicken, chicken sandwiches, grilled chicken and Lord knows I love me some chicken wings and wings and wings and wings.

But weird imagery aside, you don’t have to worry about that with this dish. Yes, there is a habanero in it. Yes, habaneros are the spicy pepper. Yes, eating one raw straight off the vine would probably make you cry. But in this dish, the seeds are removed, and the habanero roasted leaving you will a spicy yet sweet burst of flavor that is perfect with this chicken.
Note: This chicken requires marinating for at least 2 hours. Plan ahead.
