Chicken and vegetables is pretty standard in the dinner plans of most people. It’s easy enough, tasty, and pretty high on the nutrient scale.

Unfortunately, it can also be pretty high on the boring scale. Which is why mixing it up with different seasoning blends is important sometimes. This is why this recipe uses three different Ava Jane’s Kitchen seasoning blends together to get a complex flavor that is anything but boring.

The main flavoring comes from a combination of Blackened Fish and Los Muertos Barbecue. These give it a spicy, Cajun flavor with a hint of barbecue. And because it’s my favorite, and I try to incorporate it in just about everything, I added a dash of Hot Roasted Garlic. It’s my go to seasoning that takes a dish from good to outstanding.

I also used veggies that fit in with this same vibe — onions, celery, green onions, and carrots. I know these seem like the start of a stew, but when you caramelize them in some good seasonings, they can be pretty good on their own.

You can use breasts or thighs here; I used thighs because that’s what I had on hand, but breasts work well for quick weeknight meals.
