- 1/3 cup hot Sauce
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 3 tablespoons barbecue sauce
- 1 clove garlic , minced
- 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (or chilli powder or chilli flakes)
- 1 teaspoon white vinegar
- 1 teaspoon granulated sweetener(or sugar) — Optional
- Salt to season
- 6 chicken thighs , bone in with skin
- 1 large Avocado , sliced
How To Prepare
Preheat oven 220°C | 430°F.
In a shallow bowl, mix together the hot sauce, butter, barbecue sauce, garlic, onion powder, cayenne pepper, vinegar and sweetener (or sugar if using). Divide half of the sauce and reserve for later into a separate bowl or small cup/jug. Add the chicken thighs into the bowl and evenly coat.
Fry thighs in batches (about two at a time), in a preheated large skillet or oven proof pan on medium-high heat until browned on all sides. Change oven setting to grill (or broil) on medium-high heat. Place all thighs back into the pan and allow to continue cooking and crisping under grill/broiler (make sure your pan is on the middle shelf), until cooked through (about 10-15 minutes).
Once completely cooked, pour the remaining sauce over the chicken thighs and serve with sliced avocado.
