Choke Your Chicken Peri Peri Sauce Review
Choke Your Chicken Peri Peri Sauce – In the realm of hot sauces, I generally think that there are two defining characteristics: heat and taste. Each sauce, of course, will have both but where on the spectrum will it fall? In the case of Insane Chicken’s “Choke Your Chicken” Peri Peri Sauce, both heat and taste are definitely present but the focus is on the taste, regardless of what is stated on the label.
Made with the “African Devil” Peri Peri and jalapeno peppers, the first smell from this bottle reminds me of a nice curry. It’s sweet and tangy. From the first taste, it is clear that this sauce would liven up almost anything because it has the right level of spice and an awesome flavor. The heat is at an intermediate level but that isn’t to say that it is completely quiet. The burn is interesting, more like little needles of heat rather than an all-over burn.
This is a fun sauce. On the label, we have the jokes about choking chickens and the note that “no chickens were choked in the making of the sauce” but it isn’t overly profane (I still have Baboon Ass to review). The blurb tells you that you will be begging for mercy and the sauce won’t give you any. This is a bit of a stretch but maybe I’m just a glutton for punishment. In my opinion, Choke Your Chicken Peri Peri Sauce is not insanely hot. However, it is extremely tasty, especially if you like Indian-style hot sauces. If it was cooked into meat, I bet this would surprise you, both in the spiciness and tanginess.
“Choke Your Chicken” Peri Peri Sauce is like a meal. The ingredients include molasses, red wine vinegar, herbs, spices, onion, and the two types of pepper mentioned above. This makes sense because it is zesty, tangy, tasty and full-bodied. I wouldn’t think of this as just a condiment because it could easily be used as a marinade or, if you felt like buying a lot of it, the base for a delicious curry.
Choke Your Chicken Hot Sauce would be perfect for chicken, barbeque and any kind of meat. It would be excellent for curries or anything that needed a curry-like pep. I’m partial to curry sauce on French fries and this delivers. Because of the full bodied flavor, the heat and taste are deceptive. “Curious” is the best term to describe it. Grilling is especially recommended with this sauce.
