Zesty Chicken

CHICKEN BLEND No.50
 

Zesty Chicken

BLEND ORIGINAL RECIPE

My Blend No.50, spiced with black pepper, paprika and lime, has just the right amount of kick and zestiness for chicken. This recipe works equally well when roasted in a pan with vegetables. Simply dice your favorite root vegetables (such as carrots, potatoes, and turnips) and coat with some of the herbed oil, separate from the chicken. Place vegetables in a roasting pan. Place chicken pieces on a rack and put the rack in the pan on top of the vegetables and roast. Try using this Blend for your Thanksgiving Turkey, you will be happy you did!
