Anchovy Chicken Recipe

If you don't fear the anchovies, then this delicious chicken thigh dish with garlic breadcrumbs might because your new favorite.

And I promise I wouldn't steer you wrong.  The anchovies aren't even the strangest part, it also involves grilling a breaded piece of chicken. Take the plunge, you won't regret it.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 3 anchovies, drained and chopped
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 6 cups garlic, smashed
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 shallots shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 green string beans, ends trimmed

Directions

 

  1. In a food processor, combine 2 of the anchovy fillets with the bread crumbs, garlic, parsley and 1/4 cup of the olive oil; process until evenly blended.
  2. Season the chicken thighs with salt. In a large bowl, toss the chicken with the bread crumb mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  3. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. In a pot of boiling, salted water, blanch the green beans until bright green, about 1 minute. Drain and pat dry.
  4. Grill the chicken thighs over moderate heat until they are lightly charred, crisp and cooked through, about 10 minutes per side. Transfer the thighs to a platter.
  5. In a large skillet, heat the remaining 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Add the shallots and the remaining anchovy fillet and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until the shallots are softened, about 5 minutes. Add the green beans and cook, tossing a few times, until heated through, about 2 minutes. Season the green beans with salt and transfer to a serving bowl. Serve the chicken with the green beans.
