This dish is great for those who have family members that don't like spicy hot food and those who do because the heat can be adjusted in each bowl with the hot sauce. I used 8 thighs instead of a whole chicken which worked out well for us. I also used a small bag of frozen corn instead of fresh (not really the season now). I served it with french bread and rice cooked in chicken broth with garlic & parsley. We'll definitely make this dish again.
