This chicken is not for the faint of heart. If you only enjoy eating mild chicken, please check out our BBQ, Kebab and Lemon & Herb marinades. If you love chicken that packs a punch (and then some), our hot and spicy chicken is perfect for you.
This isn’t one of those marinades that ‘probably won’t be that spicy’ or ‘should be quite mild really’. Even customers who regularly eat spicy dishes told us that they drank several gulps of milk after trying this one.
Looking for the perfect sides? Here are a few ideas…
Refreshing watermelon, feta and cucumber salad
Sound tricky to make? It’s not. Just get a nice, juicy watermelon. Then chop it into cooling chunks and put in a salad with Greek feta cheese, cucumber and some lettuce. After that, let your taste buds chill out in this Mediterranean oasis after each tantalising bite of spicy chicken. Melt some of the cheese over your meat for extra effect.
A fruity salad like this is a great way to make spicy food easy-to-eat for the kids.
Do you feel like there’s no point having spicy chicken without spicy sides? Then go all in. Put your chips in the oven and chop up red and (or) green chillies. Grating them works too. Take the seeds out if you want to remove some their spice. When your chips are nearly ready, take them out of the oven.
Toss on your chillies and put everything back in the oven until your chips are nice and crispy. Add a bit of salt after you’ve taken them out of the oven. Then just stick them on a plate and enjoy at least seven degrees of unprecedented spice alongside your chicken.
Ice Cream for pudding always goes well
Everyone loves ice cream (especially after spicy chicken). There are so many flavours to choose from. You’ve got the traditional ones like vanilla, chocolate and strawberry. You’ve also got the more eccentric flavours like pistachio, black cherry, mango, lemon, hazelnut, and mint. We’ll also give mint chocolate chip and honourable mention too because it tastes so great.
Whatever you choose, scoop after scoop of refreshing ice cream is the perfect ending to a wonderfully spicy meal. Why not let the kids mix and match their favourite ice creams for extra special puddings?
So many stress-free dinners have started with defrosting our hot and spicy chicken.
