Spicy-sticky Chicken……oh yessss!

Anyone that knows me well, knows that I love the spice!  The hotter the food the better, I mean make your eyes and nose water spicy.  I grabbed lunch today at Pei Wei in Beverly Hills because their menu said they had spicy caramel chicken…..yes spicy…caramel..chicken. YAHTZEE!  Yeah? NO!  I was so disappointed. I ask the guy to make it as hot as they could and I even got extra chili paste to go. It wasn’t hot but more disappointing was fried & just too oily. So I came home and said Im recreating it my way and I want it a little sticky. Soooooo all you brave naughty little devils out there, go get spicy and sticky in the kitchen! xo
