Baltic chicken

As a follow-up to my Piet Huysentruyt blog, here is a recipe from the man himself. I saw it for the first time on his show SOS Piet, I liked the vibe of the recipe (I just can’t resist spicy food, and believe me, this dish is spicy!) so I decided to try out! Here follows a translated version, but if you would like to take a look at the original recipe in Dutch, you can find it here. (btw: the ingredients list might seem long, but if stored correctly the spices hold really long so consider it as an investment for the future!)
