Method

 

  • Place all the ingredients into a liquidiser and blitz to a fine paste, and you may need a little more oil to get a nice consistency.
  • Place the quarters into a baking dish and cover well with half the marinade all over the chicken.
  • Cover with plastic film and chill for a couple of hours. Best if you can leave overnight.
  • Preheat the oven to 200 C gas 6.
  • Heat and overproof pan and add a little oil.
  • Add the chicken skin died down and gently sauté over a low heat for 10 to 15 minutes, then turn over.
  • Pop the pan into the preheated oven and cook for 15 minutes or until cooked.
  • Leave to rest covered with foil for at least 20 minutes in a warm place.
  • Serve with the rest of the sauce, braised rice and macho peas.
