I had this on the old board ( JB, I checked and its not a repost:D)

This is absolutely the hottest way I have devised to cook chicken! Heat factor 10. You are warned!
This is a very subjective recipe. I have been experimenting with it for a while, the key ingredient is fresh ground black pepper. About a cup of it! The other main thing is to use flavorful seasoning to brown the chicken with. There are alot of all kinds of peppers in it, you have to keep playing around with it.
This time I did it like this:


15 lbs chicken thighs and legs, skinned
4 onions, rough chop
3 green bell peppers, rough chop
1 cup garlic, rough chop
1 large bottle hot cherry peppers, diced, with liquid
1/2 lb bacon diced
2 green habanero peppers minced
4 or 5 assorted hot peppers diced
some dried hot peppers
olive oil
1 cup fresh ground black pepper
crushed red pepper flakes
cayene pepper
1 can of chipotles in adobo sauce, minced and the sauce
2 cups red wine
salt
oregano

For the seasoning I mixed a bottle of Emerils essence and a cup of garlic powder, 2 Tbsp fresh ground black pepper and 2 Tbsp kosher salt.

In a large pot,cook the bacon till crumbly. wilt the onions and green peppers for about 6-8 minutes in the bacon grease, add all the other chopped peppers and cook for 3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another minute. Lower heat to simmer.

Season chicken and start browning insome olive oil, with the dried peppers in it, in batches in a large saute pan.

As batches are done, put pieces in large pan with veggies. After every batch in the pot, grab a hand full of black pepper and throw it in! Also as you feel the need, shake some red pepper flakes and some cayene in there.

After the last batch of chicken is browned, deglaze the pan with the wine and cook for 3 minutes or reduced by 1/2. Add to pot.

Cast Iron Stomach and a very healthy appetite !

Yeah, something. Plus a gastroenterologist on retainer?

When younger and into my 20's and ealry 30's even mild salsa was hot to me....now I enjoy a little more heat and often crave spicy foods....it's strange how this has evolved with me.

Me too....but judging by this and his wing recipe, either he has a stomach of steel or those evening visits to the potty are very disturbing. :(

Believe it or not, I can handle any kind of pepper heat with no problems! The tasty hotter the better!
But when it comes to tomato sauces I get killed with heart burn, go figure!

I love spicy food, but not when spicy heat is the only flavor. I doubt that you can taste much beyond the heat with that chicken :p I might have to try it with some alterations.

I know folks that go to the wing joints to try the "hottest" they got....to get a picture of them on the wall eating them...

One guy told me, it makes the next day rough on the gut.

How could it not?

Ha,thats where you are wrong! The secret is to season he chicken with tasty stuff like garlic and Emerils essence and then brown it and to deglaze the burnt crunchies in the pan with wine for even more flavor. Then you layer the heat. When you eat this the heat is not the first thing that happens, first you get flavor, then your lips get numb, then your tongue starts to burn :D Then you gobble some bread and down a beer and eat some more!! Oh yeah, your head will sweat too!

My kids are always telling me, dad, it was hotter the last time!:eek:

Glad you posted this again. I made a version of it with a variety of fresh home grown peppers, it was very good. :)
