WRAL reporter Brian Shrader and our own Lisa Prince feature seasonal recipes in their Got to Be Good Cookin’ segment using ingredients grown and available right here in North Carolina.
Continuing a month of chicken recipes, Brian and Lisa prepare a whole baked chicken that is rich in flavor and light on the wallet. Lisa says that preparing a whole chicken is less expensive than buying pre-cut chicken breasts or thighs, and can make enough meat to use for several meals. The chicken, which is stuffed with fresh herbs and coated in an herb-butter mixture, can be used as leftovers in your own chicken salad recipe. It also can be used for a simple grilled chicken sandwich.
The chicken, fresh herbs and other ingredients for this recipe may be available at a grocery stores, farmers markets or roadside stands near you. To find a farmers market or roadside stand in your area, go to www.ncfarmfresh.com.
