  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 200C. Combine potato and onion in a large roasting pan, drizzle with 60ml olive oil, season to taste and place in oven while you prepare the chicken.
  • 02
  • Pound herbs, rind, garlic and paprika in a mortar and pestle until a paste forms, stir in half the lemon juice and remaining oil. Transfer to a bowl with chicken, stirring to coat well, and stand to marinate for 10 minutes.
