After Jeff Smith, better known as "The Frugal Gourmet", visited Avery Island with chef Craig Wollon, he sent his favorite Tabasco sauce recipe, a grilled or broiled butterflied chicken said to be straight from the devil. The abundant black pepper compliments the Tabasco sauce in this simple but distinctive dish.
chicken is butterflied. Mix the remaining ingredients in a large bowl and marinate the chicken for 2 hours.
Prepare a charcoal fire for grilling or preheat the broiler. Grill the chicken, skin side down, on a medium-hot charcoal barbecue for 25 minutes, or broil it, skin side up, 5 inches below the heat for about 15 minutes. Turn and cook until the juices run clear when the thickest part is pricked with a fork, about 15 to 20 minutes. As the chicken cooks, baste it with the marinade.
Lagniappe - Add ½ teaspoon of Tabasco sauce to the liquid used to moisten stuffing for turkey or chicken.
