Garlic & oregano marinated chicken with a black olive vinaigrette

Method

  • Process the citrus juices with 3 crushed garlic cloves, the chilli paste, oregano, honey, vinegar and seasonings until well combined. Then add 2 cups oil through the feeder tube, little by little, continually mixing.
  • Place the chicken pieces on 1-2 large baking trays, skin side up, and pour the marinade over the top. Then turn a few times to coat very well and refrigerate for at least 3 hours, tossing every hour or so. Then barbecue, grill or roast in a hot oven until the juices run clear.
  • To make the vinaigrette, process the olives with the capers, parsley, anchovies, remaining garlic and some ground pepper. Then mix in a little oil to form a paste. Transfer to a bowl and whisk in more oil to form the consistency of a vinaigrette.
  • Serve the chicken on individual plates with a bowl of the vinaigrette and a simple green salad alongside.
