Grilled Chicken with Spicy Red Pepper Sauce

This Grilled Chicken with Spicy Red Pepper Sauce was a quick dinner recipe I came up with when we first brought over Elli & Manos' Flaming Red Pepper. Now that we have it back in stock, and with Father's Day & Fourth of July barbecues around the corner, I thought it was time to share it again. After all, who doesn’t love cook-outs in the summer?! They are the epitome of the outdoor summer living and as a good Greek mom, I'm often reminded of summer family dinners.

When my kids were still living at home in Cincinnati, my sons would often barbecue and help me whip up a quick dinner that we could enjoy on our porch. Then my husband & I became empty-nesters but I'd still rely on that quick dinner staple, grilled chicken breasts, spiced up with Elli & Manos' piquant sauce. I add roasted squash and sweet potatoes to balance the heat and have a perfect summer dinner. Try it yourself and let the summer goodness continue!


2 chicken breasts

4 tbsp organic extra virgin olive oil

Salt, pepper and oregano

2 sweet potatoes

1 butternut squash

a few sprigs of fresh thyme

1 jar of Spicy Dip with Florina Peppers by Elli & Manos


Cut the sweet potatoes and squash in 1” cubes.

Place in a bowl and mix well with 2 tbsp of the olive oil, salt, pepper, and the fresh thyme.

Roast at 400ºF for about 45-50 minutes until cooked.

In the meantime, mix 2 tbsp olive oil with salt, pepper, and oregano.

Thoroughly brush the chicken breasts, whole or cut in slices depending on how you like them. 

Grill the breasts on your BBQ or grilling pan until they are cooked through. 

Toss with more of the Spicy Dip and add some more on top for an extra hot taste.
