April 2020: Herbs


I made a lemon herb mixture that I rubbed underneath the skin of chicken legs and thighs.  This went into the oven along with red onion wedges and roasted for about half and hour.

When the chicken has reached an internal temperature of 160* , add the radishes and bread cubes to the sheet pan.  Return to the oven for another 10 minutes until the radishes are slightly softened and the croutons are golden brown.


Slice a head of Romaine in half and place, cut side down on top of the chicken, return the sheet pan to the oven and broil until lightly charred.


I had also quartered a large russet potato and wrapped it in foil with butter, salt and pepper.  This was placed in the oven at the same time as the chicken and I served them along side.


I chopped the Romaine and tossed it with the radishes, onions and croutons.  I drizzled with the juice of half a lemon and some extra virgin olive oil and served it along with the chicken and potatoes.  It was a delicious dinner and, having used a silicone mat on that baking sheet, clean up was a breeze.


This has been one of my favorite meals thus far this month. I adapted it from a recipe found in Cuisine at Home, which never seems to disappoint.

How to cook Herbed Chicken with Charred Romaine Salad

  1. Combine the basil, lemon juice and garlic with 2 teaspoons of the olive oil, 1 teaspoon of the lemon zest and salt.

Loosen the skin on the chicken pieces and insert the herb mixture underneath.  Place, skin side up onto a baking sheet that is covered with parchment or a silicone mat.   Toss the onion with 2 teaspoons of olive oil, season with salt and pepper and place next to the chicken on the baking sheet.   Bake in a preheated 425* oven for 25-30 minutes, until an internal temperature of 160* is reached.

Toss the radishes with 1 teaspoon olive oil, season with salt and pepper and to the baking sheet with the chicken and onions.  Toss the bread with the remaining olive oil, season with salt and pepper and arrange on top of the radishes and onions.  Return to the hot oven and bake for about 10 minutes, until the croutons are golden brown.

  1. I love adding herbs and lemon to chicken, whether roast or grilled. Love the idea of charring the salad ingredients at the same time!
