DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat a heavy skillet over medium heat; preheat oven to 400°.
  • In a food processor, combine the garlic, parsley, almonds, and lemon zest; pulse to chop them into a dry paste.
  • Loosen the skin on the chicken and spread one fourth of the mixture under the skin of each piece.
  • Grease the chicken breasts with a liberal drizzle of olive oil and season them with grill seasoning.
  • Place the breasts in the skillet skin side down; top them with another smaller skillet.
  • Weight the pan with a brick; cook them to crisp the skin, 6-8 minutes.
  • Transfer the pan to the oven and roast them for another 15-20-25 minutes or until done.
