Stay warm with this pair of delicious chicken recipes. Seasoned with paprika and cumin and then sweetened with honey, this roasted chicken goes great with green beans and potatoes. Then you can make tasty lettuce “boats” with the leftovers. A great way to get that BBQ flavor without grilling out in the cold.
