This chicken recipe will spice up your weekly routine and requires no pan searing (YES!). It's flavorful, unique, and so good leftover! I made it for my mom, who often gets sick of her usual weekly meals, and she was so into it! She doesn't eat the crispy skin but the chicken is still so flavorful when it's taken off. Personally, I love the crispy skin!
Chicken is easily overdone during the week so this recipe will change things up. Serve with some rice or cauliflower rice (if Whole30 or Paleo) and veggies for a perfectly balanced meal.
