So the chicken is just rubbed with rosemary paste and roasted. I made the paste in my spice grinder with fresh rosemary. It also included juniper berries and I can’t seem to resist a recipe that calls for juniper berries. I thought I would have trouble cleaning the paste out of my spice grinder (really just a coffee grinder) after filling it with fresh rosemary, juniper berries, peppercorns and fresh garlic but I didn’t actually.
The greens are kale… have I mentioned before that I love kale. I think I have. The rice is just boring old rice pilaf but I did use brown rice and I toasted the pine nuts, because I had company and it needed to be special. Toasted pine nuts are special, dontcha know
