Lime and Mint Chicken

Submitted by: BARBIETEC
Lime and Mint Chicken

Introduction

Delicious and fresh Chicken recipe with mint and lime.

First you have to make a marinate out of one lime, sea salt, olive oil and the mint.

Take one lime and rasp the skin into a bowl, take the juice from the lime and squeeze it to the bowl and the chopped mint. Finally add the salt. Mix it together and put it over and under the chicken skin.

Slice the second lime and put over the chicken and wait about two hours.

Before you put the chicken into the oven take the lime that is on top of the chicken and put it to the side of the chicken legs, and spice with coriander and cayenne pepper. This is done so the skin will be crisp.

Put into the preheated (200 C) oven for 45 minutes.
