Roast Poussin with Salsa Verde



⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I have to say that we all enjoyed this simple roast yesterday. It was all cooked in under an hour and relatively faff free. I absolutely love little poussin as they are sweet and have less fat that a full sized chicken. This should leave you with gorgeous juices at the bottom of the pan which I spooned over as a delicious gravy. I served it with roasted Jersey royals and tenderstem with lemon zest and almonds.
