3 Spring Chicken Recipes

It’s easy to fall into a recipe routine. The recipes you have may be easy to prepare, quick cooking, based on ingredients you always have on hand. However, using those same ingredients you could bring together new combinations that will fit into the convenient routine, but offer a new flavor profile. Cayenne Parsley Spring Chicken, Orange Spice Spring Chicken, and Ancho Cilantro Chicken combine flavors you already have on hand with a result that is spectacular, delicious and, most importantly, easy.

Each of these recipes takes just 5 minutes to prepare and under an hour in the oven. That’s enough time for you to give attention to the rest of your meal, set the table, catch up on one of your favorite novelas and present a delicious dinner that looks like you slaved in the kitchen when, in reality, the oven did most of the work.

For the ultimate combination of smoky and spicy, Cayenne Parsley Spring Chicken brings in the big guns: cayenne, ground ancho, chili powder and paprika. The addition of parsley helps bring out the flavor of each spice while adding a freshness that tempers the heat. Orange Spice Spring Chicken is smoky, spicy and tangy thanks to the combination of paprika, red pepper flakes and fresh orange zest. Ancho Cilantro Spring Chicken takes the smoky aspect to a new level with ground ancho, adding a subtle spice that intensifies with each bite, counteracted by the fresh, bright flavor of cilantro.

What are you waiting for? It's a new season; time to shake things up!
