Angry Chicken: It will make you happy!

I have no idea why this recipe is called Angry Chicken.  It didn't make me angry.  It was super juicy and flavorful.  It made me happy!  My guess is it takes its name from "arrabbiata" which is Italian for "angry."  This is all due in part to the addition of red chile flakes.  It's not too spicy, it actually has the perfect amount of kick.  I served it with pasta and a yummy salad, but it would be delicious on a sandwich, in a salad or as an entree with any type of side dish.  Gotta love grilling season!
Don't you just love grilling season?
The Angry Chicken Party
In a large mixing bowl combine mustard, garlic,
Don't forget the cilantro,
red wine vinegar, salt, coriander
and  chili powder.
Don't forget the red chili flakes. 
That's the "angry" part.
Mix in the vegetable oil.
Pour over chicken and marinate 6 hours.

Remove chicken from marinade
and sprinkle with Cajun seasoning.

Grill chicken until cooked through.
Don't forget to occasionally
brush with butter.  Enjoy!
