I chose these spring vegetables since they are in season, but feel free to switch it up based on what’s available locally to you. Seasonal food is fresher, tastier and more nutritious. Seasonal fruits and vegetables produced on local farms are often fresher, as they do not require long distances for transport. Also, unlike out of season produce which is harvested early to be shipped and distributed to your local retail store, crops picked at their peak of ripeness are also better tasting, full of flavor and contain more nutrients.


Herb Marinated Chicken with Spring Vegetables and White Beans

This herb marinated chicken dish came into fruition when I made food for a private event that I was hosting for over 20 people. I did not have a ton of time and I needed to make some of the food a day or two beforehand. I was able to chop up my vegetables and marinade the chicken nights before and stored it all in the refrigerator until I was ready to make everything. This is also a great option if you’ll be cooking at the end of a busy day or right after work. Another perk is this dish tasted even better on day two and three and was so easy to make, serve and held together nicely.


Enjoy eating and serving this super simple and delicious dish! Its great all on its own, tossed over some salad, or tossed together with some pasta for a quick spring pasta salad.
