Herb Marinated Chicken

This recipe comes from JamieOliver.com, of The Food Revolution, on ABC Fri nights. Watch it. Love it. Do it.

• 4 chicken breasts
• a bunch of summer savory
• a bunch of fresh rosemary
• 8 cloves of garlic, skins left on
• 8 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
• a thumb-sized piece of fresh root ginger
• sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
• 2 lemons, washed and thinly sliced


Place chicken in a roasting tray. In a pestle and mortar or with a rolling pin and a metal bowl, bash and bruise the flavour out of the herbs, squash in the garlic cloves and pour in the olive oil. Mix and rub all over the chicken, then lay them out flat, skin-side up, and grate over half the ginger.

If you have time, leave it for a couple of hours to marinate.

Preheat your oven to 425°F. Season the chicken well after marinating and place it in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove and lay the lemon slices over the chicken, then grate the rest of the ginger all over. Tilt the tray and spoon over all the lovely cooking oils before cooking for another 20 minutes or until nice and golden and cooked through – the juices should run clear.

Remove from the oven and rest for 10 minutes before serving.
