Roasted Chicken with Salsa Verde Recipe


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. The fruitiness of the Chef’s Pick Organic California Extra Virgin Olive Oil adds a nice rich flavor to the herbs.
