Chicken is every kitchen-staple and this recipe adds variety and flavour to cooking this popular meat. Deliciously served with assorted salads, mixed lettuce leaves or a mesculin mixture lightly coated with an extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar and sun dried tomato dressing. To complement, you may wish to prepare a drizzled herbed/olive oil and ricotta foccacia. Basic recipe from "Classic Essential Roasts, Hawthorne Press" and accompaniments from my own kitchen.
