I had a whole bunch of extra chicken breasts lying around so I went hunting for an interesting chicken recipe to make. I came across this recipe and decided I would give it a try. Honestly, I think it is good, but not at the top of my list. It is spicier than I would like, and also is high in sodium which I didn’t realize till after I made it. It also doesn’t generate that big of a serving size for the amount of sodium that is in it. On the plus side though, it is very low in calories. Also, I had to use a bigger casserole dish for my version, which probably made the output not as great. All in all, I would still recommend trying this out if you like hot sauce.
