Number of Servings: 5


    1 chicken (approx. 2.25kg / 4Żlbs) cut into 10 pieces
    1 bulb of garlic (separated into unpeeled cloves)
    3 lemons (cut into eighths)
    1 bag new (red) potatoes
    t Tbsp Thyme
    3 tablespoons olive oil
    1 cup chicken broth
    black pepper


Pre-heat the oven 325F.

Put the chicken pieces into a roasting pan and add the garlic, lemon chunks, potatoes and the thyme.

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 chicken broth and grind on some pepper, then cover tightly with foil and put in the oven to cook for 2 hours.

Remove the foil from the roasting tin, and turn up the oven to 400F. 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 at the edges.
