Disclosure: I am participating in the Chicken Farmers of Canada campaign managed by SJ Consulting. I received compensation in exchange for my participation in this campaign. The opinions on this blog are my own.
I don’t mind eating plain chicken with no sauce, marinade or rub, but I’m not sure my family would agree. It’s much more fun to dress up your chicken with your favourite flavours. I think of chicken like my art canvas. I can be daring and bold with ingredients or choose ones that I know work well together.
For the month of June, the theme is #NoNakedChicken! Chicken Farmers of Canada always has such creative campaigns and this is one of my favoruites. The goal here is to cover your chicken up with sauces, marinades, rubs and more. Get it – no naked chicken? 🙂
I’d be here all day listing out ways to dress up your chicken. Chicken Farmers of Canada has loads of recipes on their site if you need a little inspiration. I found one that I wanted to try – Honey Dijon Drumsticks. Instead of using drumsticks, I used chicken breasts because that’s what I had on hand. They tasted divine!
The marinade is flavourful combination of honey, Dijon mustard, oil and paprika. They are savoury with a hint of sweetness from the honey. I love the mouthwatering colour the spices add to the dish.
Serve it with your favourite sides. I paired mine with some wilted spinach cooked in a little olive oil with salt and pepper. Healthy and tasty!
