Onion and Anchovy Chicken Thigh Roll







A recipe allowed in a / / / diet.

We've made this mega-delicious roll of meat with tenderized chicken thighs. We filled it with a slightly hot mixture of smoky onion, garlic, and anchovies which we flavored with rosemary and lemon zest. Then we roasted it and now we think we did a pretty good job.

  1. Loved it! Have to admit I was lazy and did not even flatten the pieces nor make one big roll. Instead I just did individual folded parcels. Yes, the recipe will give a better result! (I was just lazy) Also used a little more achnovy. Was great with cauliflower mash and some green beans. I will certainly make this again!

    1. Hi, Afra! 😊 We’re glad you experimented. This is something we always encourage. You were not lazy, you adapted the recipe to your needs. 🎈 Way to go!
