Variations

Making this for two people (with leftovers) I modified the recipe, below, to suit our tastes. The result was very nice recipe, despite not having garlic or chillies!

  • 8 Chicken thighs on the bone, skin removed and deep slashes cut into the flesh to shorten cooking time and absorb more flavours
  • Only 4 cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 3 teaspoons of paprika powder

I added about 120 ml of chicken stock as I though it would be too dry. In the event it would have been fine without.

Chef's notes

You can use a whole chicken for the meat, so long as you have the correct quantity of chicken pieces to make the recipe.
