Roasted Chicken with Salsa Verde Recipe

Sauce Verde is a piquant herb sauce traditionally made with parsley. Albert has added a handful of other appropriate herbs for a slight variation. A good olive oil adds a nice rich flavor to the herbs.

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2. To make the sauce, add all ingredients except olive oil to a food processor. Puree until finely chopped. Slowly add all of the Chef's Pick olie oil until smooth. Taste for seasoning.

3. Gently pull up the skin from the meat - do not completely remove - and spread some of the sauce evenly over the breast meat, and then place the skin back down. Reserve some of the salsa verde to top finished dish.

4. Set chicken breasts in a baking dish and brush with a little olive oil. Roast in oven until done, about 20 minutes.

5. Serve with a little more sauce spooned over the top.
