You need to get to know this chick. She’s fresh, hip and definitely worth your time. The type of chick you would call for a second dinner date.
Prep time: 30 minutes minutes
Cook time: 1 hr – 1 hr 30 minutes
Makes: 3-4 people depending on chick size
1 Whole chicken
1 lemon, juiced
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil or melted coconut oil
2 bay leaves
1/2 cup loosely packed fresh parsley
4 fresh sage leaves
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp chili flakes
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
First preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Next, throw all your ingredients (apart from the chicken – please don’t blend your chicken) into a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth and pour over that bird in a baking dish.
Place it in the oven for 1 hr. Then turn down the temperature to 325 degrees and roast for another 15-30 minutes or until it’s done. A meat thermometer is the best tool to take out the guess work.
Cover it up with foil and let it rest for 10 minutes so those juices can settle. Then carve it up and serve FS (that’s family-stlye) or fancy AF (you know what I’m talking about) if you’re trying to impress!
