Ww Italian Spicy Chicken

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by English_Rose

The Italians have a way of grilling small baby chickens bathed in olive oil, garlic and chillies. They call it The Devil’s Chicken (Pollo A Diabolo) because it is spicy hot and quite delicious. This recipe is a lower fat version baked in the oven. 2.5pts per serving, from weight watchers. Serve with a green salad and some small boiled potatoes or cooked pasta dressed with parsley and a little chopped garlic.

So simple to make. Got a good kick and nice mixed flavours of spiciness, sourness, sweetness from stock

  1. Heat the oven to 325°F Place the chicken in a shallow ovenproof dish.
  2. Mix together the garlic, chili, oregano, oil, lemon juice and stock or water.
  3. Spoon over the chicken making sure it is well coated. Cover the top loosely with foil to protect the flesh from drying out.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes, basting once or twice during cooking. Remove the foil and brown the chicken for the last 5 minutes. Allow to stand for 5 minutes before serving.
