My wife and I would like to share our “Spicy Chicken Breast” recipe with everyone, so you can enjoy the amazing flavors and endless dinner possibilities that will come from this one simple recipe. So let’s get right to it!
Here are the ingredients you will need.
(Feeds 2 to 4 people)
4 Large Chicken Breast
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Stubbs Moppin Sauce (12oz bottle)
Salt & Pepper (and any other spices you love)
Now, I need to mention that you will be cooking this delicious meal in the oven for one hour and thirty minutes, so give yourself some lead time to make sure dinner is ready when you are ready to eat, okay.
First, you want to turn the oven to 325 degrees. Now let’s go ahead and clean the fat of the chicken breast, if needed, and butterfly any thicker breast into thinner pieces or cut them into two pieces if you want. Medium to small pieces is fine for this meal and they will cook just how we want them to. Now add your salt and pepper (to taste) and any other spices you enjoy. Remember, this is “spicy” chicken, so you may want to add some additional ingredients to make it a little hotter. Here are the spices my wife and I use in our dish which gives it a nice spicy flavor, but its not hot for wimps like me that can’t handle really spicy food.
Lawrey’s (about 6 to 7 shakes)
Garlic Sea Salt (grinder-3 or 4 turns)
Peppercorn (grinder 8 to 10 turns)
Black Pepper (grinder 8 to 10 turns)
Ground White Pepper (large pinch)
Mrs. Dash Southwest Chipotle (6 good shakes)
— next 4 ingredients 1/2 tsp each —
Ground New Mexico Chili Pepper
Now before you mix your spices and sprinkle them all over the chicken, put a little olive oil on the chicken so the spices stick like glue. Cover the chicken evenly with the wonderful spices. Next we want to prep our cooking dish. For the amount of chicken you have, you want to use one large pan or two mediums pans. First, add about 1 table spoon of olive oil to the bottom of the pan and 1/2 cup of beef broth. This will ensure the chicken doesn’t stick and stays nice and moist during cooking. Now, put your chicken breast in the pan nice and even (touching each other is fine) and cover generously with 1/2 a bottle of Stubbs moppin sauce. It should look something like this:
Next, put the chicken in the oven (middle rack) and set a time for 1 and 1/2 hours. Now, just sit back, enjoy a cold drink and wait for the magic to happen. For some amazing reason, which I am truly grateful for, the Stubbs sauce breaks down during the cooking process and mixes with the oil and broth to create this amazing spicy oil-juice that you can save and use on other dishes such as “Chef-Shea’s Spicy Chicken Green Chili Cheese Enchiladas”, which I will share with you another time, I promise!
Once you finally hear the timer go “ding”, it is time to sample some of the best chicken breast you will ever taste!
You can serve them any way you want to, maybe with a side of veggies and mashed potatoes and a side salad, or maximize your dish and make some tasty spicy tacos or spicy chicken cheese enchiladas. The chicken is fork tender now and full of great flavor. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do, and don’t forget to save the juices in the pan for later use.
Happy Eats Everyone!
