Playing Shimmy & Roast Chicken


  • 3 cups croutons, ground up in a food processor, or use breadcrumbs
  • 3/4 cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 2 springs of thyme, leaves pulled off
  • 1 sprig of rosemary, leaves pulled off and finely chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 large, gallon-size re-sealable plastic bag
  • 1 whole chicken, cut into 10 pieces
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 8 basil leaves, chopped
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  • 3 vine-ripe tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 1 heart of romaine lettuce, cleaned and chopped


Serves: 4 servings




Preheat the oven to 400F.



Mix the ground croutons, Parmigiano, oregano, thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper in the plastic bag and toss to combine.



Add the chicken, a couple pieces at a time, seal the bag and give it a good shimmy-shake to coat the chicken.



Place the coated chicken on a baking sheet and repeat with remaining chicken until all the pieces are coated. Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until cooked through.



Into a container with a lid, add the red wine vinegar, garlic, basil and EVOO. Place the lid on tight, and give it a good shimmy to mix it up. In a salad bowl, add the tomatoes, red pepper, red onion and romaine, and pour dressing over the salad.



Season with salt and pepper, toss to coat and serve alongside the chicken.
