Extra-crispy grilled chicken thighs are bathed in a lush Parsley & Olive Salsa, rich with olives, fresh chili and lemon-another Little Jewel from the Bijouxs Kitchen.
The real key to this recipe is cooking the chicken until the skin really crispy and brown, this helps the chicken hold up to this rich salsa.
PARSLEY & OLIVE SALSA
The definition for salsa is “A spicy sauce of chopped, usually uncooked vegetables or fruit, especially tomatoes, onions, and chili peppers, used as a condiment”. That seems to ring true for this lively sauce. I saw the sauce here and wanted to try it, but of course you need to be a member to see the recipes, it’s that way all over-no more free online. In fact, I too had to move to a Membership Collection for my 500+ recipes, the website costs have really sky-rocked.
USE WHAT YOU HAVE
This is such a great start to the New Year, cleaning out the refrigerator/freezer! A no waste tactic to use what I already have on hand-a lesson from my favorite book “An Everlasting Meal” by Tamar Parker. I use her wonderful way with on-hand vegetables, as in my Autumn Roasted Vegetable Salad Recipe No. 245. Worth a look.
For this recipe I reworked my favorite raw olive sauce recipe, and my FIRST ever post on the website, Summer Tomato Sauce which I still use on regular meal rotation. I created this current sauce as close to the one I wanted. The jalapeño is what keeps this in the spicy salsa family!
Crispy chicken is bathed in the Parsley & Olive Salsa and served family style on a platter. I add to this with a simple green salad and a scoop of chocolate gelato for dessert. Simple.
