Herby lemon and garlic chicken
Serves 4-6
Fresh herbs, (e.g., parsley, rosemary, coriander, thyme and chives), plus extra parsley for serving
6 garlic cloves, peeled
100ml olive oil, plus extra for serving
1kg chicken pieces, (we used thighs and drumsticks)
2 lemons, sliced, plus extra juice for serving
Sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
  1. Pop all of the herbs in a food processor, add the garlic and blitz while slowly streaming in the olive oil.
  2. Combine the chicken pieces with the  sliced lemon and season well with salt and pepper. Pour over the herby oil. Cover and leave to marinate for at least four hours, or overnight if possible.
  3. Preheat the oven to 190 ̊C/170 ̊C fan/gas mark 5.
  4. Place the chicken on a baking tray, skin- side up, and roast for 30 minutes or until the skin is crispy and the meat is cooked.
  5. Leave the chicken to cool slightly before adding lots of extra freshly chopped parsley. An extra squeeze of lemon juice and a drizzle of olive oil is also recommended.
