Sometimes the same ol’ chicken just doesn’t cut it, and you’ll need to spice it up! Jesse and I discovered this spicy chicken recipe on AllRecipes.com: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Spicy-Chicken-Breasts/Detail.aspx
The spice mixture makes plenty for a few batches, so we usually put the remaining spices in a container to use for future cooking endeavors. Instead of grilling it, we put it in the oven at 350° for 45-60 minutes. We love to serve this chicken with rice! And if you have leftovers, another great way to eat this is to slice up the chicken, spread some hummus on a wrap, place the chicken on it, and wrap it up! The hummus helps balance out the spiciness for those who don’t love the kick quite as much. But feel free to experiment!
Sometimes it’s fun to recycle meals…unless you cook like I did one of the first times I tried to serve leftovers:
Here’s the recipe:
