The Best Ninja Foodi Spanish Garlic Chicken
I had some chicken staring at me in the fridge that I just knew I wanted to step out of the box with. I remember a recipe I made awhile back for a dinner date at home. This chicken was tender, juicy and bursting with flavor.
Best Chicken to Use for Spanish Garlic Chicken
I opted for bone in chicken I find it gives more flavor to this dish. You can buy your favorite cut whether a mix, drumsticks, or even thighs.
This recipe can work with boneless chicken as well, you just have to watch to ensure it doesn’t dry out as it cooks.
What to Pair With Spanish Garlic Chicken
Sides are welcome for this dish, and you can find what fits your family best. I will share a handful of ideas with you below to consider!
- Dinner rolls or homemade bread
- Steamed or roasted vegetables
- Mashed potatoes or cauliflower mash
- Buttered pasta then spoon sauce over pasta
- Green salad
As you can see the sides are endless! This Spanish chicken is phenomenal and is versatile on how to pair side dishes with.
How Long Will Spanish Garlic Chicken Last
Store your Spanish Garlic Chicken in the refrigerator for up to three days. Just place in a storage container until ready to eat.
This chicken reheats beautifully and is a tasty option for meal prepping for the week. I have placed leftover chicken in single serve containers and used it for meals whether it was lunch or dinner down the line.
Can You Freeze Spanish Garlic Chicken
I have not tried freezing this chicken but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. You can use a freezer vacuum sealer or freezer bags to seal up your chicken. Freeze up to 2-3 months time.
To reheat thaw in fridge the night before then place in a pan and wrap tight with aluminum foil and warm up in the oven.
The aluminum foil will help prevent your chicken from drying out as it reheats. Or you can warm in microwave if you prefer.
