    1. Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees C.
    2. Shell the pistachios, and crush with a mortar & pestle into a rough powder. Add olive oil, coriander & pepper to taste.
    3. Stir the mixture into a thick paste, add more oil if needed.
    4. Apply the paste, with the back of a spoon, evenly to the skin of the chicken.
    5. Bake in the oven for about an hour, until chicken is cooked & paste has gone crispy.
    6. *alternatively, for crisper skin, peel back the skin and apply the paste directly to the chicken meat, then lay the skin back over the meat & paste.
