Ingredients
 

  • 1 kg chicken, split in half lengthways, spine removed
  • 5 large limes, juice and finely grated zest
  • 2 small onions, peeled and very finely sliced
  • 5 tsp caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 400 ml strong cold chicken stock
  • pinch salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp arrowroot, slaked

Instructions
 

  • 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 cook them, take them out of the liquor, dry them very well in kitchen paper and 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 cook slowly until cooked right through. DO NOT BURN About 10 minutes.
  • Pour all the liquor into a saucepan, bring to a boil, and gently simmer to reduce by half; check the seasoning and adjust if needed.
