- 1 whole chicken ( I prefer the Greenwise publix chicken)
- 1 cup of minced cilantro
- 4 garlic cloves
- 1 bottle of lemon juice ( those that look like a lemon. You can find it at the fresh produce section of the supermarket.)
- 1 teaspoon of oregano
- salt and pepper to taste
If you wish, you can peel potatoes and cut them in squares and add them to the chicken before you place it in the oven. The potatoes will roast with the citrus sauce giving it a very tangy and delicious flavor. You just need to prepare an italian blend salad with cherry tomatoes, diced cucumber and sliced red onions, and dress it with (in that order please) salt, pepper, a teaspoon of mustard, a teaspoon of honey, two tablespoons of balsamic vinegar and four or five tablespoons of olive oil. Mix it well with a fork and pour it over the salad.
A good wine match to this meal would be a pinot noir which is a light red that goes well with poultry. My recommendation would be a Robert Mondavi Pinot Noir, or if you want something more subtle and expensive, I would say that you get a Leaping Lizzard Pinot Noir from Oregon (about $20).
But, it you are more of a white wine lover, this recipe would go well with a California Chardonnay or a french Chablis.
