Green Goddess Chicken 

It is well known that if you marinate chicken in buttermilk, you will get the most juicy chicken. I have done that with the chicken nuggets earlier on.  So why not marinate chicken in the green Goddess dressing. 

Serves 4.



Pour the dressing into a ziplock bag with the chicken thighs. Let the chicken marinate in the dressing for at least 6 hours or over night in the refrigerator.

Preheat the oven to 450℉ (235℃).

Remove the chicken from the marinade, shaking off the excess dressing, and place the chicken skin-side up on a rimmed baking sheet. Discard the marinade. Pad the liquid off the chicken skin with paper towel. Drizzle the chicken with olive oil and sprinkle with coarse salt. 

Roast the chicken for 30-45 minutes golden brown and cooked through.

Serve the chicken with a salad and use the dressing as a cold sauce.
