Chicken with Lemon and Herbs
Chicken with Lemon and Herbs
(Pollo al Profumo di Verdello)
 
 
Ingredients:

1 large chicken 
1 large onion 
2 garlic cloves
2 tablespoons capers
2 lemons or limes
1 bay leaf 
1 sprig fresh rosemary
8 basil leaves 
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar 
Extra virgin olive oil 
Sea salt 
 
Directions:
 
Thoroughly rinse the chicken under cold running water and then pat it dry with a kitchen towel.
 
Cut the chicken into at least 8 pieces, slice a lemon in half and rub the pieces with the lemon, then place the chicken in a bowl and set aside.

Chop the onion into small pieces, remove the rosemary leaves from the sprig and tear the basil leaves.
 
Zest a lemon, cut it in half and then squeeze the juice into small bowl.

Place the chicken pieces in a large pan with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and cook over moderate heat until the pieces are almost thoroughly cooked and nicely browned, then return the chicken pieces to the bowl.

In the same pan, add the onions and garlic and cook until transparent and lightly golden.
 
Return the chickens pieces to the pan and then add the capers, bay leaf, rosemary leaves and torn basil leaves. 
 
Add the lemon juice, salt to taste and scrape the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon.
 
Cook for a minute, then add the white wine vinegar and lemon zest, stir and remove from heat and serve.

That's it!
