Christy’s Famous Chicken Recipe

There’s a reason this recipe has “famous” in the title….EVERYONE gobbles this right up! This has been a staple in both meal plans I have written as a nutritionist and in my former Catering career! The blend of herbs and spices is unique, and not one of my pre-made blends, BUT you could totally substitute with any of your favorites. (I would recommend Taste of Arizona, Bayou Blackened, or Ragin Cajun).
