  1. Add the chicken pieces to a bowl , add the salt and citrus zest and juices and marinate in the refrigerator for at least a couple of hours. I usually leave them overnight.
  2. Heat the oil, pat the chicken pieces dry and and fry chicken until they are golden, drain on kitchen paper and set to one side.
  3. Sauté the garlic and onion for a a few minutes, then add the remaining sauce ingredients.
  4. Stir fry for a minute and then add chicken pieces to reheat.
  5. Serve with plain boiled rice, garnished with slices of lime.

Chef's notes

For health reasons, I try to avoid frying whenever I can especially when there is already so much butter as in this recipe. As a healthy alternative, I sprayed the chicken pieces with a little olive oil and roasted them for about 35 minutes at 220°C (425°, Gas 7). They tasted just as nice!
