Baked Chicken

Cobbled together from a mixture of meat unfit for the Capitol, flour from tesserae, and a collection of herbs and spices gathered in the surrounding grasslands, this is a standard dinner from District 10. The livestock District is one of vast fields and sweeping plains, but even these residents of Panem find themselves under the constant eye of the Peacekeepers. However, they still have time – and heart – enough to gather their families together for evening meals.

For such a straightfoward recipe, this is especially delicious. It’s best served with tesserae grain, or, if available, rice or potatoes.
