Deliciously Spiced Sage Chicken recipe

This Deliciously Spiced Sage Chicken recipe is one of my most popular recipes for good reason. There’s something about the combination of chicken and sage that feels “fall” to me. It goes great with various side dishes or even on its own as a main dish.

I have had several ideas on how to cook chicken. Many have been flops, and many have been winning recipes. This Sage Chicken is a winner. Not too many ingredients, but long hours of marinating.

I love cooking poultry with sage. It is one of the perfect spices for chicken. Not to get off subject, but who would have thought that sage keeps ants away? Good for chickens and bad for insects. Go figure!

The chicken is marinated overnight for enhanced flavor with fresh lime juice, shallots, sea salt, and ground sage. One additional step is to clean the chicken with either lime or vinegar. That may make a difference, depending on your preference.

I grew up cleaning meat with lime juice or vinegar, so It is very typical for me to clean meat this way. With ground meat, a touch of lime juice or vinegar is always present.

The ground sage spice is not overwhelming, even with one tablespoon. It is believed that dried spices are stronger than fresh spices. This dish welcomes the 1-tablespoon of ground sage. Enjoy my Sage Chicken with a lovely potato dish or steamed vegetables.

Note: To make a sauce to serve with the Sage Chicken, cook the marinade, add tomato paste, onions, and season to taste.
