Chicken Diablo

Are you watching the Oscars?? I get even more excited now that we live in LA. I have been able to see the Goodyear blip from my apartment all day! It is sp cool to know that all the stars are just down the street. Since J is in the film business, we try to see a lot of the films and decide which ones we like best. My favorite movies this year are The Artist, The Descendants and The Help! Soon we will see if one of my favorite's is the winner. PS I think Billy Crystal is doing a great job!

I have recently seen a lot of different recipes for Chicken Diablo. I had never tried it before so I wanted to see how it tasted. J and I are both huge fans of Frank's Red Hot so we loved this dish.

Chicken Diablo
1/4 cup Frank's Red Hot
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup ketchup
2 Tbsp honey
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp cumin
4 chicken tenders
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
2 cloves of garlic
green onions or cilantro as garnish
3/4 cups of white rice
Mix together Franks, ketchup, sour cream, honey, cumin and paprika.

Pour half of the sauce into the chicken to marinate for at least 2 hours. 

Heat oil and minced garlic in frying pan.
Remove chicken from marinate and add to hot oil.
Cook for about 7 minute on each side, or until cooked through.
Heat reserved sauce in a sauce pan.
Cook 3/4 cups of rice with 1 1/2 cups of water until done.
Serve chicken over rice and pour heated sauce over chicken and rice.
