St Tropez Chicken
This is one recipe I would recommend to everyone. It is a Nigella Lawson recipe. It feeds a crowd and tastes great. So if you are having a big get together, or just feeding your extended family like I am.
This is the chicken for you. Although it does take two hours to cook, you can be doing other things. I love the crispy skin this dish makes.
St. Tropez Chicken
Adapted from Nigella Lawson
1 chicken, cut up
Juice of 1 lemon
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup rosé wine
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tablespoon herbes de provence
In a large freezer bag, place the chicken pieces. Combine the lemon juice, the oil and the wine, then whisk in the honey to dissolve. Pour this mixture over the chicken, and add the garlic and herbs. Seal the bag and refrigerate overnight or up to two days.
Preheat the oven to 325. Put the chicken into a roasting pan along with the marinade, skin side up.
Cover with foil and cook for 2 hours.
Remove the foil and increase the oven temperature to 425. Continue to cook for an additional 15 – 25 minutes, until the chicken is nicely browned.
Peace be with you,
