ASIAN CHICKEN and CABBAGE SALAD

This time I added a chopped garlic clove and fresh rosemary to the…

Technically this bird was cooked today in my oven, indoors, in the warmth of our land galley, but honestly it’s – 40 ° today with the wind chill factor and no matter how you slice it – 40 ° is the same in Celsius and Fahrenheit. But the basic principal still applies for barbecue roasting. The dijon rub can also be used on chicken pieces. Just place a piece of lemon on piece of foil, top with some fresh herbs…
