  1. The original recipe called for the use of a single Scotch Bonnet or Habanero chile which would up the heat of this recipe considerably.

  3. 2 Put chicken in a large bowl. Coat with chile paste. Let stand 10 minutes.

  5. 4 Broil chicken in the center of the oven. Turn once after about 10 minutes. Broil until fully cooked and nicely browned, about 20 minutes total. Note that some pieces may cook faster than others. Remove the pieces that are done and continue to cook the rest until cooked through.

  6. Transfer to a platter and serve.
