Notes

Cooking the Chicken. Discard the chicken marinade before cooking. You can cook your chicken any way you'd like - grill, saute, fry, oven bake, broil. However you cook it, be sure to cook the chicken until it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F when measured with a meat thermometer.
Heat Factor. Use 7-Pot or Reaper powder for even MORE heat! If you’d like a milder version, use cayenne powder, or for a low heat version, use paprika.
