Ingredients

4 chicken legs

2 large handfuls flat-leaf parsley

A large handful of mint leaves

A large handful of basil

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

Olive oil to taste

Lemon juice to taste

Salt and pepper

Directions

Lay the chicken legs on a cutting board and carefully cut a slit down to the bone with a sharp knife. Working with the tip of the knife, remove the meat from the bone and trim away any gristle. Salt and pepper the deboned legs and gloss with a little olive oil. While a grill or grill pan heats, combine the herbs and mustard in a blender or small food processor and chop, then add olive oil to create a barely pourable sauce. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and sharpen with lemon juice. Grill the chicken skin-side down until its golden and crisp, then finish on the other side. Serve with the herb sauce.
