Chicken with Ginger Scallion Pesto
Adapted from Nom Nom Paleo Ready or Not
2 TBS softend ghee or butter, if not Whole 30
1/4 cup scallions, thinly sliced
1 1/2 tsp grated ginger
1 tsp salt
3 bone in, skin on chicken thighs
1 1/2 tsp melted ghee or butter if not Whole 30
1 tsp salt
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees with the rack in the middle position. In a small bowl, mix the sotened ghee or butter, ginger and 1 tsp salt. Using your fingers carefully seperate the skin from the meat of the chicken to form a pocket. Add 1 1/2 tsp of the butter mixture under the skin of each thigh. Carefully, distribute the butter mixture by pressing and massaging the skin. If you like you can refrigerate the chicken and cook it later. When ready to cook, put the chicken skin side up on a rack on top of a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Brush the remaining melted ghee or butter on the chicken. Roast for 30-35 minutes. Rest the chicken 5-10 minutes before serving.
