Method

  • Place the chopped onion, cold chicken stock, sugar into a glass or ceramic bowl, and mix well.
  • Then add the squeezed lime juice and season the whole thing well with salt and pepper.
  • Remove the backbone from the chicken by cutting down either side with a sharp knife.
  • Break open and flatten well, then remove the knuckles.
  • Place the chicken into the liquor cover with cling film, pop it into the fridge, and leave overnight. I have left for 2 days before, delicious.
  • When you come to cook them, take them out of the liquor and dry them very well in kitchen paper, season well with a little more salt and pepper.
  • Preheat the oven to 200°C gas 6.
  • Heat the butter and oil in an ovenproof frying pan and place the chicken skin side down.
  • Cook nice and slowly so that they brown nicely and evenly, then turn over and do the same on the other side.
  • Then pop the whole pan into the oven and continue to cook slowly until they are cooked right through. DO NOT BURN About 10 minutes.
  • Pour all the liquor into a saucepan, bring to the boil, and gently simmer to reduce by half; check the seasoning and adjust if needed.
