Spice up your Chicken

Chicken.  You can’t escape it.  And it gets old.  If you are a normal person you can flavor it with things like cream sauces and seasonings.  If you are a clean eater you can use things like olive oil and white cooking wine.  If you are diabetic you can add a dash of natural sea salt.  Also, you can eat bread.

If you are a bodybuilder you can look at your plain chicken and sigh.  *Sigh*

Food prep

But I won’t let boring chicken get me down!  I decided to use different herb and spice combos to give my taste buds some variety and then pretend I’m eating the real recipe.

Food prep - spices

Here are the combos I used:

  • Lime juice and pepper
  • Sesame seed and ground ginger
  • Paprika, thyme and pepper
  • Parsley and ground sage

Are you a cleaning eating/diabetic/bodybuilder type?  How do you make your chicken taste better?

Also, if you like my posts, can you please “like” my Facebook page, ShesLosingItnet?  I’ve got 700 likes and am trying to grow it to 1,000 by the end of the month.  I’m not sure how this is even possible, but I’ll just throw it out to the universe and see what happens.

  1. Lemon, oil and garlic.
    Sage, oil and garlic.
    I like to roast boneless chicken thighs in the oven marinated in spices, oil etc. It works well with breasts, also.
    You can go towards a more oriental spicing–ginger is a must–and make a stir fry with chicken and a ton of veggies. Maybe brown rice? If you have a healthy-ish sauce, it can be even tastier.

  2. THanks for the suggestions. I am somewhere between “clean” and “body builder”….and my husband is French (and naturally skinny like most europeans) so I can’t let him do the cooking, otherwise it’s like (after I’ve eaten) well, I just added some cream to it, or he’ll say I saw your chicken cooking and it looked a little dry so I drenched it in olive oil and butter….Gaah!

  3. I just made chicken! With fresh rosemary and garlic and of course salt and pepper! It was yummy and the house smells so good, now! I seriously love me some chicken.

  4. Great blog! I know your pain of getting bored with chicken. Great spice combos I love are:
    -Cajun seasoning (Emril makes a great one)
    -Adobo pepper sauce (buy the adobo peppers canned with sauce), which is EXCELLENT with butternut squash as well,
    -and my recent favorite Tandoori chicken. You can substitute greek yogurt in the marinade to make it healthier. Delicious, and still low-cal/low-fat!!

    Good luck!
