Spicy Succulent Chicken w Silverbeet

Ohhhhh yummy yummy. Nothing better than finger lickin’ chicken on a bed of greens. The seasoning on the skin is to die for and makes biting into the crispy succulent chook all the more delicious. You could easily do most of the prep before the kids get home from school and then all you have to do is chuck it in the oven ready for an early dinner. A dish everyone will love.
