South American inspired and an easy way to change up the everyday chicken recipe. Super easy to prepare and very flavorful with our Tempero Baiano seasoning blend, this dish was a winner at our dinner table.

Our Tempero Baiano seasoning is hand blended with marjoram, Mexican oregano, white pepper, black pepper, nutmeg, basil, red pepper flakes, parsley and bay and is used primarily for adding flavor to broth, chicken, fish, soups, stews and vegetables. Serve over Saffron rice with a nice glass of white wine and this entree makes a perfect meal for your next dinner party.
