We had a chicken in the fridge that was already cut into pieces, and I asked Dino if he would be interested in coming up with a spice rub and making dinner. He came up with a really great mixture, and cooked it in the convection oven. It turned out super moist and flavorful, with a nice, golden brown skin. He served it alongside frozen spinach that he cooked on the stovetop according to the directions (adding it to a cup of boiling water), and then seasoned it with curry powder, butter and salt. I ended up sprinkling some raisins on mine at the end, which added a nice bit of sweetness. It was great coming home to such a nice meal, without having to cook it myself!
