Baked Green Chicken

image

An odd name I know!

My husband has a dislike for parsley and the garden is producing mountains of it just now so I need to sneak it in to as many things as I can! When he saw this before it was baked the shade of green made him call it Hulk chicken, it is that green!

You can barbecue this chicken too, it has fabulous flavour for such simple ingredients.

Serves 4-6.

Ingredients

1.8kg chicken pieces, bone in, skin on

2 lemons, juiced

4-5 cloves garlic, chopped

a big bunch of fresh parsley

30mls olive oil

salt and pepper

Method

Combine all of the ingredients, except the chicken, in a food processor and whizz until you have a thick but pourable paste, you may need to add a little more oil.

Place the chicken in a large bowl and pour over the marinade, use your hands to cover all of the chicken in green, leave to marinade for 30 minutes if you have time.

Preaheat the oven to 190 degrees centigrade and line a baking tray with baking parchment.

Place the chicken skin side up on the tray, pour over any remaining marinade, and slide into the oven.

Bake for 30 minutes and then baste with the pan juices, do this a few times until the chicken is fully cooked and the skin is crispy.
