I know that chicken can get boring sometimes, but there is nothing boring about this dish, which I discovered on Whole Foods Market website. It has so much flavor and the seasoned paste keeps the chicken perfectly moist. This is one of my new favorite ways to roast chicken!
There’s nothing that quite rivals the taste of a good, juicy roast chicken. And despite their status as a “Sunday Supper”, they are actually quite easy to make and don’t take overly long. This spicy twist on a classic comes together in about an hour. Pair with your favourite low carb veggie sides for a wholesome meal.
