DIRECTIONS

  • Pre-heat the oven to 160ºC.
  • Put the chicken pieces into a roasting tin and add garlic cloves, lemon chunks and the thyme; just roughly pull the leaves off the stalks, leaving some intact for strewing over later.
  • Add the oil and using your hands mix everything together, then spread the mixture out, making sure all the chicken pieces are skin side up.
  • Sprinkle over the white wine and grind on some pepper, then cover tightly with foil and put in the oven to cook, at flavour-intensifying low heat, for 2 hours.
  • Remove the foil from the roasting tin, and turn up the oven to 200ºC and cook the uncovered chicken for another 30-45 minutes, by which time the skin on the meat will have turned golden brown and the lemons will have begun to scorch and caramelise at the edges.
  • Serve straight from the roasting tin to plate.
