Peaches HotHouse owners know their chicken.

Are you a spicy chicken aficionado?

Daily News staff writer, Jacob E. Osterhout wrote in his latest article, “If you can’t take the heat, get out of the restaurant. Bed-Stuy Southern food joint Peaches HotHouse boasts the spiciest fried chicken in New York City.”

Osterhout’s story really caught my attention when he quoted Peaches HotHouse co-owner Craig Samuel saying, “People come in all the time and want the extra-hot chicken. They say they can handle it because they are from Jamaica or Africa or Haiti or wherever. But I don’t care where you are from. It’s hot.”

No wonder, part of their recipe is the inclusion of the world’s hottest pepper – “the ghost chili,” which is also remembered as the Naga Viper. Freakish monikers. Still, I’m crazy enough to try it. That’s coming from a kid that drank Tabasco sauce from a baby bottle at the age of 3.

Yup. And I’m sure I will suffer.
