Sweet Sticky and Spicy Chicken

sweet spicy and sticky chicken

I’ve been a huge fan of All Recipes for many years now… And I get their daily emails of recipes to try… Usually nothing really excites me too much… But I saw this recipe come across and had to try it out!  (I made a couple slight changes from their recipe… but used everything they suggested)

I can tell you it is definitely on the SPICY side and the next time I make it I will be toning it down a few notches for the kids!  I have a funny little story behind it though:  Once I served it up… and didn’t realize how spicy it was I told the kids they didn’t have to eat it … Then my husband followed it up with “but if you do eat it and finish it all I’ll give you $150 dollars”  I couldn’t believe what had just come out of his mouth… I actually thought maybe our 2nd born son would take on the bet because he will basically eat anything I serve him… but oh no our 1st born, the one that is by far the pickiest of them all said he was gonna do it!!  Part of me still thought no way he’s gonna do this… But guess what HE DID!!  3 full glasses of milk later he polished off his plate and we were out $150 bucks!!  Both my Husband and I went to bed that night saying I can’t believe he did it… and me saying I can’t believe you bet him!!!   Thanks goodness he didn’t say $1000 or something!!!

On a side note… we don’t normally make bets with our children like that… But it was quite the dinner conversation that we had and all the kids cheering him on!!

    • I know Mara… he was in pain LOL I couldn’t believe trev offered up the bet… But then I really couldn’t believe Dae was taking it on!! Made for an interesting dinner around here!!! Got to love my family!!

  1. I just found your site….my new favorite! This looks so good! I am just in the process of making your Amish bread. Hope it works out as I don’t have a mixer with hooks so I had to do by hand. I’m not sure if I kneaded it long enough. Thank you!

    • Andie… I’ve totally made this bread by hand before no mixer… Just make sure you hand kneed for a good 5 to 10 minutes!! and if you don’t think you did that after its first rise punch it down and let it rise for an additional hour (sometime I do that when I don’t have time to put it in pans anyways!) Thanks for the post… I love hearing everyones feedback!!

      • Oh my goodness! My bread turned out beautiful and tastes amazing. I can’t believe how easy it was…Thank you, thank you!
