Garlicky Diablo Roasted Chicken

Spicy is a word used frequently in this household. The spicier, the better in my family's humble opinion. We are always finding ways to give things a little spice kick. Be it adding sriracha (my new favorite ingredient) or adding just a dash of red pepper flakes, I will try to find some way to incorporate spice into a dish.


The other night, I was trying to figure out something to do with bone-in chicken breasts. I did not want to go to my old standby of using the crockpot. I wanted some oven baked/roasted chicken. I also wanted to do a rub on the chicken instead of the usual soup mixture poured of the chicken. So, off to my spice cabinet I went to see what I could find.

Now, in case you did not know, diablo in Spanish means "devil". A lot of Mexican restaurants use this word when referring to something with some extra spice on their menus. That is why I used the word diablo in naming this recipe.

This recipe has some major heat to it. Of course, you can tame down the heat by adjusting the amount of certain seasonings. However, if you and your family are like me and my family, you are going to love the spicy nature of this dish.

Now on to the recipe!

You will need:

Bone-in chicken breasts
Minced garlic (I use store bought minced garlic)
Worcestershire sauce
Salt
Pepper
Onion powder
Cayenne pepper
Butter
Rinse and pat dry your chicken. Place in a sprayed 9X13 pan, skin side up.
In a bowl, mix together the spices and the Worcestershire sauce until it forms a paste.
With gloved hands, rub mixture over each chicken breast making sure to coat each piece well and getting some the mix under the skin.
Place a half piece of butter on each of the chicken breasts.
Bake for 40 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
I served mine with a side of corn and rice.
The chicken was very moist and you could taste the seasonings all the way through the chicken. This recipe is definitely going on the family rotation schedule.

Again, if you and your family do not like a lot of heat, then by all means, adjust the amount of spices. I personally would start with the cayenne pepper because this where a lot of the heat is coming from.

I hope you enjoy!!

Love to you all from The Busy Cooking Momma!
