Voodoo Child Chicken

Voodoo Child Chicken created by Bonnie G 2

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 ...

ingredients

directions

  • Saute chicken pieces in a skillet with butter and garlic until chicken and garlic are nicely browned.
  • 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.
  • Remove chicken from skillet and coat with voodoo rub (tomato paste mixture).
  • Test your heat tolerance first!
  • Bake covered at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour (depending on which chicken pieces you're using).
  • Alternatively, after sauteeing with garlic, this chicken can be grilled with the voodoo rub.
  • I like to serve with plain white rice spiked with sliced scallions.
  • Oh, and remember not to rub your eyes after handling that chile- or wear gloves while crushing!

    DH made this for our dinner last night and so good, followed the recipe and finished on the outside grill. Spicy but just the right amount for us, though for some I'm sure would need to cut down on the chili's. We'll be doing this one again

    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.

    Very good! I skipped the sugar because my husband doesn't like it. Will make it again, thanks!
