Onion and Anchovy Chicken Thigh Roll

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.

Ingredients

2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
1 onion, minced
2 garlic cloves, crushed
6 anchovies
1 teaspoon rosemary leaves
½ teaspoon chili flakes
pepper
lemon zest
8 boneless chicken thighs
salt
pepper
2 rosemary sprigs
4 cherry tomatoes
1 tablespoon olive oil

Steps

  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a pan over low-medium heat. Add the onion and garlic. Cook and stir until tender.
  2. Add the anchovies, rosemary, and chili flakes. Season with pepper and lemon zest, then cook and stir for 3 minutes.
  3. Carefully tenderize the meat using a mallet.
  4. Lay the tenderized chicken thighs on the work surface in overlapping rows.
  5. Season them with salt and pepper, then evenly spread the cooked onion mixture on them.
  6. Carefully roll, then seal with kitchen cord.
  7. Transfer the roll to a baking dish. Add the rosemary sprigs and tomatoes, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  8. Bake for 45 minutes at 400⁰F/190⁰C.
