This easy, delicious chicken is a new favorite at our house. The "everything but the kitchen sink" green sauce is fun to make and takes ordinary baked chicken to a new level. (This recipe was inspired by a recipe from The Kitchn)

Instructions
The Chicken
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees
  2. Place the chicken pieces on a sheet pan.
  3. Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. Drying it will result in a lovely, crisp chicken
  4. brush the chicken with olive oil
  5. Sprinkle the chicken with the 1 teaspoon of kosher salt and 1/2 teaspoon of ground black pepper. Bake the chicken for until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees (about 30 minutes)
The Fresh Herb Sauce
  1. Zest the lemon
  2. Place the cilantro, basil, garlic, red pepper flakes, lemon zest, the juice of the lemon, olive oil, white wine (if using) along with a pinch of salt & pepper in a blender.
  3. Blend the sauce until all the ingredients are incorporated. Taste and adjust the seasonings.
  4. Have fun with this one. Feel free to use your favorite herbs, add more heat, wine, garlic etc.. to make this sauce your own. Here's a great shot of my friend Fred and neighbor Laura creating their version
  5. Once the chicken has finished baking remove it to a platter. Spread the Fresh Herb Sauce on the hot sheet pan and place the chicken on top. The Herb Sauce will mix with the pan juices to create a rich, flavorful sauce. Let the chicken rest for 10=15 minutes.
  6. Place the chicken on a platter and spoon the sauce all over
  7. Serve with your favorite salad, vegetables and bread or rolls and a crisp white wine and/or your favorite sparkling water and enjoy!

  1. I just made this tonight. It was a hit — four thumbs up! I needed to enlarge the recipe some, so I added some parsley to the cilantro and basil. It came out fine. Definitely will be making this again, especially once I can buy local herbs.
