Coriander is one of my favorite herbs in cooking, especially when it comes to Lebanese food. I adore that peculiar and unique smell plus the taste that adds to the food.
Coriander and garlic chicken is a relish. Doesn’t require efforts or skills, just prepare the marinade and give it time in the oven to obtain this perfect juicy meat and crispy skin.
Serving 4-6 people you will need:
- 12-14 pieces of chicken (could be thighs, drumsticks or breasts)
- 1kg potatoes cut in medium cubes
- 1 bunch of coriander
- 8 garlic cloves
- juice of 2 lemons almost 3/4 cup
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1 tsp salt
In a food processor blend coriander, garlic, lemon and salt until smooth. Poor it over the chicken, add the olive oil and store in a bag for marination. Keep it in the fridge for an overnight.
Take it out of the fridge 30 minutes before baking. Put together with the potato cubes in a baking dish and bake uncovered on the middle rack for an hour on 200°C.
I guarantee you a perfect juicy chicken and full of flavors. So yummy that’s going to be on your “to cook list”. Is your stomach rumbling? i hope you get the chance to try it.
