Ok I admit it. This is my version of a famous & very popular chicken restaurants dish! (I'm sure you all know the one!)
Most of the ingredients for the marinade are all ones that you can keep in your store cupboard & chicken thighs are very budget friendly.
You can serve this with my Savoury Rice, it's a perfect match! (Link at the end of this recipe)
Serves 4 Approx 81p per serving
Prep time including marinade 3 hours Cooking time 25 minutes
6-8 chicken thighs, bone in, skinless
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried coriander
100ml olive oil
juice of 1 lemon
salt & pepper
Place the chicken thighs into a shallow dish & prick the flesh all over with a skewer or fork.
In a jug mix together the oil & lemon juice, spices & dried herbs, garlic & a pinch of salt & pepper.
Pour over the chicken, cover the dish with cling film & put in the fridge for about 3 hours (or longer if you can).
Pre-heat the oven to 180 Fan/200C/Gas 6.
Remove the chicken from the fridge & transfer to a roasting tin. Pour over any leftover marinade.
Place in the oven for about 25 minutes. Check that the chicken is cooked through by inserting a skewer or tip of a knife in the thickest part. If the juices run clear it's done.
Serve with my Savoury Rice!
