Preheat oven to 425F. In a small bowl, mix together the oregano, rosemary, cumin and salt. Lay the chicken wings on a baking sheet and season the chicken wings with this mixture.2. Bake the chicken wings for 20-25 minutes.
While the chicken is baking, mix together the oil, fresh basil, garlic, parmesan cheese and seasoning salt.
In a separate bowl, mix together the blue cheese dressing with the mustard (this is your dipping sauce)
When the chicken is cooked through, toss the wings with the garlic/cheese/olive oil (or butter) sauce. Serve with the blue cheese/mustard dressing.
This basic method gives you both without any special pans or weird ingredients. Just rub the chicken with oil, salt, and pepper, add a few aromatics, roast for a few minutes on high heat, then finish on low.
Oven Baked Chicken
Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes Servings: 2 to 4
1 whole dressed chicken
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 cup chopped celery ribs
1/2 cup chopped yellow onions
1 piece lemon
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon dried thyme
Combine juice of 1 lemon, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper in a bowl. Mix well.
Pour 3/4 of the mixture in the chicken’s cavity, and rub the remaining on the outer part of the chicken. Place inside the fridge and marinate overnight.
Separate the skin from the meat by gently sliding your fingers between the chicken’s skin and meat starting either from the neck or the opposite side. Rub half of olive oil mixture between the skin and meat of the chicken. Rub the other half on the outer part of the chicken.
Arrange the celery ribs and onions in the cavity of the chicken.
Place the chicken on a roasting rack. Put inside the oven and bake for 30 minutes.
Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and continue baking for another 15 to 30 minutes or until the internal temperature of the chicken is 170 degrees Fahrenheit. Note: If the chicken skin needs more browning, you may need to put your oven to roast and cook the chicken until the skin darkens.
Remove from the oven and place in a serving plate.
Rub the creole seasoning on the chicken breasts. Let stay for at least 30 minutes
Heat a pan, pour-in 1 tablespoon cooking oil.
Sear the chicken breast for 1 to 2 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake the seared chicken breast for 12 to 15 minutes. Note: The thicker the cut, the longer the baking time.
Remove the chicken from the oven and allow to rest. Set aside.
On the same pan where the chicken was seared, pour remaining cooking oil.
When the oil becomes hot, put-in the carrots, Italian beans, cauliflower, red kidney beans, and yellow squash. Sprinkle with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Stir fry (in high heat) for 5 to 8 minutes.
Transfer to a serving plate. Top with the sliced baked chicken.
