I living in Az for a couple of years gave me a love for Southwestern food, so I try to mix up every dish with a lil spice. For the people that prefer chicken over turkey this is a great way to spice up your thanksgiving
1.In a sautee pan melt down the butter. Cut habaneros in half and put in butter with your chopped onions. Keep butter on a very slight simmer but not too much or it will burn or turn brown. Keep this going for about 10 - 15 minutes. Take the peppers out of the butter and throw away.
2. Pour butter and onions over chicken (save a little for your rice). Very litely drizzle honey and then sprinkle a little brown sugar over your chicken. Sprinkle your garlic and basil over chicken. Put tomato slices on top add you salt and pepper then bake your chicken at 350 for 30-45 minutes untill done. Half way through if you want, spoon some of the butter/sauce out of the of bottom pan over the chicken.
4. Cook yellow rice with some of the habanero butter, Serve chicken ontop of the spicy rice.
Thanks for the great recipe - I was looking for a way to spice up chicken without too many ingredients - your receipe keeps it simple and tastes amazing - I look forward to trying more of your creations!
I waited all week to make this for Saturday football and when I went to make it yesterday my chicken had gone bad, so I had to use porkchops instead and it was soooo good! We even had leftover porkchops for breakfast.
I can't wait to make it again, but with chicken!!
I made this recipe tonight for dinner...wow DELICIOUS! I love spicy food, so I decided to add 6 habaneros. I would suggest sticking to just 3 or 4...wow was it spicy. I loved the flavor though. Loved all of the onions, garlic spices and tomatoes on top.
I will be making this again! Thank you for this simple but very flavorful dish!
This was absolutely delicious. I made it with a homemade mango salsa to serve over it. My husband still can't stop talking about it. He thinks the habanero butter should be put on everything...even popcorn!
Amazing......made with chicken thighs as that is our preference over chicken breasts. Very easy to make; the addition of brown sugar adds a note of sweetness that is not overpowering but adds a nice note to contrast the heat of the habanero.
