Herb crusted chicken
I made this Herb crusted chicken the other day and couldn't stop thinking about it. My husband loved it.Quick and easy to make in just a few simple steps.This chicken has so much flavor from the mixture of herbs and yet remains very juicy because of the cracker crust protection over it. Enjoy this with rice, potatoes, pasta, alone or with just about anything. It will light up any side dish served alongside it.
Here is how you can make this:
1 tray Chicken thighs ( preferably boneless)
1 pack salt crackers ( any salt crackers are fine 'Ritz','Town house')
1/2 green pepper
4 cloves garlic
3 fresh basil leaves
seasonings: olive oil, salt, pepper,sage,oregano
Preheat oven to 350F/170C
Take your salt crackers and crumble them into a plate or bowl. Set aside.
clean your chicken and then lightly season it with your salt, pepper, sage & oregano powders and a drizzle of olive oil to help the seasonings to stick.
Then take a food processor (or a blender for those of you who do not own a food processor) and throw in your onion, pepper, garlic & basil and process or blend until it is a type of liquidy paste. Take this paste and rub it one by one all over your chicken thighs until they are all well covered . Take each chicken one by one and pat them down onto the cracker crumble that you had set aside. For it to cover the chicken as pictured above. do the same to both sides of the chicken.
Now place it in the oven uncovered for about 45 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked. Enjoy
