Why a PINK chef's coat?

Simply put, I carry my Dad's legacy with me through my cookbook, cooking and everyday I am writing my food columns, he is always with me. I carry my Mom with me through a silent reminder of her struggle with breast cancer that took her life, as well as the lives of many other women who have dealt with, and are still dealing with, this horrible affliction. Besides, why not pink? It makes a man look good!

Maine Red Devil Dogs

These little grilled beauties can be served at a high-end function or the family get together at the picnic table. If you want more heat, simply add it!


For 6 Serving(s)


  • Red Devil Spiced Chicken:
  • 8 ounces cooked chicken, shredded or chopped
  • 1/2 cup your favorite barbecue sauce
  • 1 tablespoon each soy sauce and red hot sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded Pepperjack cheese
  • 4 red, or new, potatoes, baked and cooled
  • Nonstick cooking spray

Maine Red Devil Dogs Directions

  1. Make Maine Red Devil Chicken by mixing chicken, barbecue sauce, soy and red hot sauce; set aside. Cut potatoes into 2 to 3-inch thick slices. Spray both sides of potato slices with nonstick cooking spray. Grill one side for about 1 minute, over direct heat, until nicely charred. Remove to cool slightly before scooping out a well on the charred side. Do not scoop all the way through, we are creating a bowl. Place each scooped out potato slice on a plate and fill each with equal amounts of Red Devil Spiced Chicken and top with both cheeses. Place back onto the grates of the grill, not directly over the flame, and close lid. Cook 2-3 minutes, or until cheese has melted and the underside is nicely charred. Remove and serve immediately.
  2. Makes about 6-9 individual servings.
