This super-quick recipe takes its inspiration from New Orleans, where sweet-tangy “bourbon” chicken can be found at just about every hole-in-the-wall restaurant both on Bourbon Street and beyond. You’ll serve your sticky, garlicky, apricot-glazed chicken thighs with a crunchy salad tossed with a creamy buttermilk vinaigrette (another important tenet of Southern cooking), over a bed of multicoloured quinoa. Consider it your own private Mardi Gras.

Cook the chicken
In a medium pan (non-stick if possible), heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken dry with paper towel; season with ⅔ the spice blend and S&P. Add the chicken* to the pan and cook, partially covered, 4 to 6 minutes per side, until cooked through. When there are 3 minutes left, add the apricot preserves and ½ the garlic; continue cooking, coating the chicken in the sauce. Transfer the chicken and the glaze to a bowl, leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan. Reserve the pan.

Make the salad
In a large bowl, combine the kale and radishes. In a small bowl, make the vinaigrette by combining the buttermilk, mayonnaise and mustard. Add 1 tbsp olive oil (double for 4 portions) and season with S&P to taste. Add as much vinaigrette as you’d like to the kale and radishes; toss to combine.

Heat the quinoa
In the reserved pan of fond, heat a drizzle of oil on medium. Empty the quinoa into the pan. Add the remaining spice blend and garlic; cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until warmed through. Take the pan off the heat and season with S&P to taste.

Plate your dish
Divide the quinoa between your plates. Top with the chicken and spoon over as much of the glaze as you’d like. Serve the salad and any remaining vinaigrette on the side. Bon appétit!
