Recipe Swap: Chicken Diablo

"Spicy", "sweet", "creamy", "delicious", "is there any more?" Words/phrases around my table tonight.  Will obviously be making this one again. Paired perfectly with some white rice (we usually do brown, but in this case - it worked better I think with white).

This recipe is part of a "recipe swap" and comes from Sweet Beginnings. This is a "blogger’s choice swap", so I got to select the recipe to make. I really enjoy these swaps - it often highlights a blog I might not be aware of (although Sweet Beginnings was definitely on my radar). Jaida has a bunch of things I like, including her serial posts: Taco Tuesdays. Such a great theme, and I have bookmarked a lot of those too. 

ANYHOO... onto the recipe.  This recipe really appealed to me because the mix of ingredients were things I already had, and it looked like I could get it done in under an hour with a little pre-prep in the morning (or night before). It had a lot of flavour, and was definitely appreciated by all.

After tasting the marinade/sauce - I did add extra hot sauce in (the family likes things spicy around here!)


  • 1/2 cup Frank's hot pepper sauce (We probably doubled this)
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 4 chicken breasts, pounded out thinly
  • 2 Tbsp canola oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup sliced scallions
  • 2 cups cooked white (or jasmine or basmati) rice


In  a bowl, combine the pepper sauce, sour cream, ketchup, and honey. Whisk it all together, then add paprika and cumin and whisk again.

Pour half the mixture over the chicken breasts in a shallow dish. Reserve the rest. 

Cover the chicken dish and allow to marinate in the fridge for at least 2 hours.

Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and bloom for 30 seconds. Add the chicken and cook until nicely browned on both sides and cooked through, 10-15 minutes.

Heat the remaining marinade in a small saucepan until lightly simmering.

Serve chicken over rice with some of the sauce spooned over the top, and garnish with scallions.


  1. I'm so glad you enjoyed this! It's one of my favorite chicken dishes!

  2. Oooh, another one to pass on to hubby! Or maybe I'll even give it a shot myself! Thanks, Kylee and Sweet Beginnings!

  3. Oh my gosh, I thought that sauce was cheese!

  4. Mmm I love anything spicy. I'm adding this one to my "to try" list!

  5. I made this for dinner when we had a friend stay with us recently. Absolutely Yummy. I will definately be making this again. Easy and very impressive. Thanks Kylee xx
