Chicken Diavola

Chicken Diavola

Pollo alla diavola, or spicy devil chicken is made with marinated chicken that is grilled to perfection and served with a spicy tomato sauce. The combination of flavors will leave you wanting more and more. The spiciness of red pepper flakes is balanced with the sweetness of tomato sauce and red wine, giving it a perfect balance of flavors. It’s easy to make and perfect for any occasion, whether it’s a weeknight dinner or a special occasion. Note: If you don’t like it too spicy, add less of the pepper flakes.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 Chicken Breasts, boneless and skinless, can substitute with thighs
  • 3 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 2 tsp. Red Pepper Flakes, or less for if you prefer less spicy
  • 1 tsp. Dried Oregano
  • 1 tsp. Dried Basil
  • 1/2 cup Tomato Passata
  • 1/4 cup Dry Red Wine
  • 2 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Season the chicken with salt and black pepper.

In a small bowl, mix together the garlic, olive oil, red pepper flakes, oregano, basil, tomato passata and wine.

Place the chicken breasts in a large resealable plastic bag and pour the marinade over them.

Seal the bag and toss to coat the chicken evenly. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, or up to 8 hours.

Brush olive oil onto the grill pan and heat over medium.

Remove the chicken from the marinade and pour the marinade into a small saucepan.

Place the chicken onto the grill pan and grill on each side until cooked through.

Meanwhile, bring the marinade to a boil and then lower the heat to allow it to simmer for ten minutes.

Serve the chicken with the diavola sauce spooned over the top.
