Drumsticks with a parmesan anchovy rub and lentil salad


  • Preheat the oven to 200ο C (392ο F) set to fan.
  • Finely chop the anchovies in a bowl and then grate the parmesan in the same bowl. Add pepper, mix with a fork and slowly add as much olive oil as needed to get a thick paste.
  • Carefully lift the skin from the thighs and from the bottom brush with the paste we made and then cover again.
  • Add pepper to the meat but not salt because the anchovy has enough. Place the meat on a tray and bake for 30 minutes or until the meat is cooked and the skin is crispy.
  • Meanwhile, cook the lentils according to package instructions, drain if necessary and put it back in the pot.
  • Put the spinach in a colander in the sink and pour one jug of boiling water over it, drain well and roughly chop.
  • Drain, rinse and cut the capers.
  • In a bowl, add the zest and lemon juice.
  • Finely chop and add the capers and the parsley. Add a little olive oil, season with salt and pepper and add the spinach.
  • Finally, add the cooked lentils and mix well.
  • Serve by putting the salad on a plate and top with the chicken thighs.
