    EdsGirlAngie's Note:

    Take up some of your sweet time with this peppery, garlicky, sweetish and spicy all-in-one entree. The voodoo rub also livens up mild white fish, such as orange roughy (being a "pesco-vegetarian", this is how I eat it). Plus it's tasty on the grill, too. By the way, this is the Stevie Ray Vaughan version ...

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Saute chicken pieces in a skillet with butter and garlic until chicken and garlic are nicely browned.
    2. 2
      In the meantime, preheat oven to 350 degrees F and prepare the voodoo rub: Combine black pepper, paprika, thyme, oregano, parsley, garlic powder, crushed bay leaf, crushed dried chile, salt, Tabasco, brown sugar and tomato paste in a small bowl.
    3. 3
      Remove chicken from skillet and coat with voodoo rub (tomato paste mixture).
    4. 4
      Test your heat tolerance first!
    5. 5
      Bake covered at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour (depending on which chicken pieces you're using).
    6. 6
      Alternatively, after sauteeing with garlic, this chicken can be grilled with the voodoo rub.
    7. 7
      I like to serve with plain white rice spiked with sliced scallions.
    8. 8
      Oh, and remember not to rub your eyes after handling that chile- or wear gloves while crushing!

      one word, YUM! I used chicken breasts because I hate picking meat off bones. I love lots and lots of herbs and spices on things and this was great. I can't wait to experiment with other meats!

      Pretty good chicken. I used 2 large chicken breasts that I cut into pieces and skewered, then cooked on the grill. I ended up having some rub left over, so put on a couple pieces of tilapia which was good as well. I used chili powder since I didn't have the dried chiles and added some cayenne for heat.

      I really thought I'd love this one but i found the pepper to dominating and it failed to allow the other flavours to shine.
