To perfect our chicken alla diavola recipe, we needed ingredients for a well-rounded but not overly spicy diavola flavor. We started by brining the chicken to keep it juicy, adding crushed garlic and bay leaves to the brine for flavor. A combination of black and red pepper flakes, gently heated in oil to release their flavors, gave our chicken alla diavola the heat it required.

Serves 3 to 4

Before building the fire, make sure that the grill is cleaned of residual ash from previous use; if left in the bottom, residual ash catches fat drippings and causes flare-ups that can singe the chicken. For this recipe, we prefer the even, slower heat generated by charcoal briquettes over faster-burning hardwood charcoal.
