Ingredients
2x large hot unseasoned Woolworths barbecue chickens
2/3 cup Woolworth Select Australian extra virgin olive oil
1 large fresh lemon, rind finely grated, juiced
3 teaspoons Homebrand caster sugar
3 teaspoons Woolworths Select dried oregano leaves
1 tablespoon Woolworths Select Dijon mustard
20g Woolworths Select butter, chopped
1 cup coarse sourdough breadcrumbs (made from day-old sourdough bread)
1/3 cup Woolworths Select flaked almonds
8 fresh spring onion shallots, thinly sliced
1/2 cup fresh continental parsley leaves, chopped

Directions:
1. Remove the chicken meat from the bones. Discard the skin then shred the meat.
2. Put oil, lemon juice, sugar, oregano and mustard in a large bowl. Season and whisk to combine. Remove 2 tablespoons to a small bowl and set aside. Add warm chicken to the large bowl and stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes.
3. Melt butter in a large non-stick frying pan. Add breadcrumbs, cook 1 minute. Add the almonds, cook, tossing occasionally until crumbs and almonds light golden. Remove to a bowl, add lemon rind, spring onions and parsley.
4. Remove the chicken from the fridge 15 minutes before serving. Spoon onto a large platter. Spoon over the reserved dressing. Scatter the breadcrumbs mixture over the chicken. Serve.

Tip1: If you have time roast 2x 1.5kg Woolworths fresh chickens. They will take about 1 hour 15 mins on 180⁰C fan forced.
Tip2: You can marinade the chicken in the vinaigrette 24 hours before serving. But its best to remove it from the fridge 15-30 minutes before serving to allow it to come to room temperature.
Tip3: You can replace the home made dressing with 1 cup of your favourite purchased dressing.
