Baked lemon chicken with butter bean mash

I found this recipe on the Taste web site and found it delicious and easy to make, once I tracked down all the ingredients.

The kids aren't too keen on the butter bean mash, but I love it, a very nutty smooth flavour similar to hummus.
I make potato mash for the kids.
The chicken was so tender and juicy.

Baked lemon chicken with butter bean mash

Ingredients (serves 4)
• 650g chicken thigh fillets, trimmed ( I use chicken tenderloins- it is the easiest for me to get in Indonesia- you could use any cut though, even a whole chicken)
• 1 large lemon, rind finely grated, juiced
• 2/3 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped
• 1/4 cup olive oil
• 2 x 400g cans butter beans, drained, rinsed
• 25g butter
• 1/4 cup sour cream
• 1 bunch steamed baby carrots, to serve


1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Place chicken, lemon rind, 1/4 cup lemon juice, 2 tablespoons of parsley, oil and salt and pepper in a large snap-lock bag. Seal bag and shake until chicken is coated in marinade.
2. Lightly grease a ceramic baking dish. Place chicken, in a single layer, in dish. Pour over marinade from bag. Bake chicken for 18 to 20 minutes or until cooked through.
3. Meanwhile, combine beans, butter and sour cream in a saucepan. Using a potato masher, coarsely mash bean mixture. Place over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 4 to 5 minutes or until heated through. Stir in remaining parsley. Season with salt and pepper.
4. Serve chicken with bean mash and steamed carrots
