One pot chicken with spice


  • Heat a layer of oil in a heavy-bottomed pan (that can go into the oven) and brown the chicken all over. Remove. 
  • Add the garlic and chillies to the pan and gently sauté, stirring and scraping the bottom as you do so. 
  • Then add the cinnamon, ground coriander and cumin. Stir to toast the spices, continually stirring. 
  • Pour in the vinegar and stock, and add the parsley and seasonings. Stir well and bring to the boil. 
  • Return the chicken in one layer, skin side up, sprinkle with lemon juice and paint the tops with honey. Then cook in the oven for about 30 mins until the chicken is ready. 
  • Remove the chicken from the pan, taste the sauce for seasoning and reduce a little. 
  • Serve the chicken on a bed of steamed rice with plenty of sauce spooned over the top.
