Zesty Chicken


artSAVOR 50

Zesty Chicken

artSAVOR 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 artSAVOR for your Thanksgiving Turkey, you will be happy you did!
