  2. Pour over chicken and bake in oven at 350⁰ for 30-40 minutes or until done.
  3. To grill, marinate chicken in refrigerator for 15 minutes prior to grilling. When grilling, baste chicken with unused marinade upon every turn.
 
Because it’s packed with omega-3s and protein, salmon should be your go-to fish. For a simple dish, serve Moore’s Smoked Salmon with roasted vegetables.
