‘Something for Summer’ Chicken

w/B.T. Leigh’s ‘Something for Summer’

Do not be afraid to try this seasoning! It’s not overly sweet but it still adds a nice citrusy sweetness to it that pairs perfectly with poultry! Don’t let the name fool you, your dinner won’t taste like you're eating a handful of strawberries, this seasoning is balanced very well.

Cook Time: 20-30 minutes Ingredients


  • Combine 2 Tablespoons of ‘Something for Summer’ with the pickle juice and oil in a zip top bag and place the chicken inside. Zip it up and shake, rub; making sure that the mixture coats all of the chicken on both sides. Marinade for 3 hours or overnight.

  • Once you are ready to cook, pat dry and sprinkle with approximately another 1 Tablespoon of ‘Something for Summer’ (however feel free to use as much as you like).

  • In an oiled pan, over medium heat, place the chicken. Remember not to crowd the pan, so you can get a nice golden brown. If you need to do this in batches, place the cooked chicken in a pan and place in a warm oven to keep it warm.

  • After the chicken is cooked, you’ll have this wonderful flavor on the bottom of the pan. Melt your butter in the pan and add the flour and a dash of the seasoning if you like. You aren’t making a traditional thick rue like you would for a breakfast gravy, so you don’t want to use equal parts butter and flour like you normally would.

  • Once the flour and butter are combined, and the pan is still hot, pour in your wine and scrape the bottom of the pan. If you have bits of flour or chicken that may be stuck to the bottom of the pan and you don’t want to have floating bits in your gravy, feel free to strain it now. Pour back into the pan and allow the wine to cook down by half and the sauce to thicken.

  • Serve the chicken with the sauce atop or on the side, alongside seared and steamed broccolini and with a Strawberry Jalapeno salsa.
