  • 1/2 cup hot sauce
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1.5 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 4 chicken breast cutlets thinly pounded
  • 2 Tbs vegetable oil
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
Optional (for garnish)
  • 2 scallions chopped finely
  1. In a bowl, combine the hot sauce, sour cream, ketchup, honey, paprika and cumin and whisk  together.
  2. Pour half the mixture over the chicken breasts in a shallow dish.  Set the rest aside for later.

  3. Cover the chicken dish and allow to marinate in the fridge for as long as you have - overnight is good, but 30 mins will work just fine too. 

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

  6. Heat the remaining marinade in a small saucepan until warmed through.

  7. Serve chicken and drizzle sauce over top

  8. Sprinkle with green onions, if using.

  9. Devour!
