DIRECTIONS

  • Arrange the chicken pieces and giblets in a heavy roasting dish.
  • Sprinkle with the spices and salt and massage into the flesh.
  • Distribute the onions, garlic, bay leaves and figs over and between the chicken pieces, pour in the wine and cover.
  • Cook in an oven preheated to 180 C/350 F/Gas 4 for about 50 minutes, until the chicken is barely tender.
  • Stir in the lemon zest and juice and return to the oven until almost falling from the bones - another 10-I5 minutes.
  • If there is an excess of liquid, leave off the cover for this part of the cooking.
  • Sprinkle with parsley and serve with saffron
