Roasted Chicken & Asparagus

I could live on chicken almost everyday of my life - don't ask why, I really don't know! All I do know is that I love its flavour, the texture of the meat itself and the fact that there are so many wonderful dishes made of it - besides it's not that bad for our health considering chicken meat is high on protein, is high in an amino acid called tryptophan, which gives you a comforting feeling, is rich in phosphorus, an essential mineral that supports your teeth and bones,  and is very good for a diet since it's very low in fat - yes I've done my homework! ;). Now if I add chicken meat a tasty, flavoured and spicy sauce I will be standing before one of my biggest gastronomic disgraces!

  • chicken
  • garlic
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • ground chillis
  • salt
  • 2 packets of butter with herbs
  • 2 lemons
  • white wine
Tie the legs of the chicken with a tight thread. Put it in a tray. Spread salt, small pieces of gralic cloves, ground chillis all over it and add the olive oil to taste. Then cut  bits of the butter and spread as well. Water with white wine and add the juice of 1/2 a lemon. Insert some garlic cloves finelly chopped and a lemon inside the chicken and it it to a pre-heated oven at 200º until the skin gets golden and the meat is tender and fully cooked.
