Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Season chicken with salt and pepper.

Heat a large frying pan and brown the chicken pieces in a little Greenleaf olive oil.

In a large baking dish, arrange the browned chicken pieces (skin side up) with the onion and garlic.

Scatter with anchovies, caper berries, rosemary and top with lemon wedges.

Drizzle with a little more Greenleaf olive oil and roast for 35 minutes.
