It wasn’t too long ago that I disliked spicy foods. I think this was just the picky kid in me that carried on into adulthood. I would turn my nose up to the idea of anything with any kick to it. I had sadly convinced myself that I didn’t like anything spicy.
I am so glad I decided to give spiciness a try again because now, I am almost obsessed with making things spicier if I can. That;s how I came up with this recipe. Since adding heat is a new cooking concept for me, I am having fun expirimenting with new ways to add it that make sense and have the favors come together for an amazing dish.
This recipe was made with Zaycon Food’s chicken thighs. I have to say, the quality of thier meat really makes me feel inspired to cook! It’s fresh and has just the right price. I am not too much of a dark meat fan, but I have to admit, if I get it from Zaycon, I am!
