Lemon chicken with a garden salad & roasted lemon yoghurt


  • Whisk up the oil, lemon zest, juice of 2 lemons, seasonings, the Tabasco and garlic in a large bowl. Add the chicken, toss well and set aside for up to 30 mins.
  • When ready, preheat oven to 220°-230°C.
  • Then cut 2 lemons in half and place in the corners of a large oven tray. Add the chicken with a little marinade and cook in the oven for about 15-20 mins until the chicken is coloured and just cooked through (checking if ready by making a cut with a small knife in the flesh).
  • Mix together the yoghurt, mint and juice from the roasted lemons.
  • To serve, arrange the cucumber, tomatoes and parsley on individual plates. Then spray with a little oil and top with the chicken and a dollop of the lemon yoghurt.
