  1. This looks scrumptious Ioana. I'm lazy, though.

    I'm going to try this with a rotisserie whole chicken; separate the legs and back from the breast and wings, make the recipe using the breast, and eat the legs the next day for supper. Yum! Maybe not quite as nice as using my own spice mixture as you do, but the rotisserie skin adds wonderful flavor and ketogenic fat.
