Gordon Ramsay's Sticky Lemon Chicken

    Newer Older

    Gordon Ramsay is one of my favourite TV personalities at the moment.... I think he is a brilliant chef.... his recipes are creative, easy to follow, tasty, healthy and really good.

    I've watched him cook on TV many times, and watched him cook this recipe on youtube yesterday ..... (I'm a bit sad I know haha).

    1 large chicken jointed into 8-10 pieces (I used chopped chicken breasts)
    Sea salt and black pepper
    3-4 tbsp olive oil
    1 head of garlic, halved horizontally
    Few thyme sprigs (I used dried Thyme)
    Splash of vinegar
    2 tbsp dark soy sauce
    3 tbsp honey
    1 lemon, finely sliced
    Bunch of flat leaf parsley, chopped (I didn't have any)

    Cooking Method:
    1) Season the chicken with salt and pepper and heat the olive oil in a large sauté pan. Brown the chicken pieces (in batches if necessary) over a high heat with the garlic and thyme for 2–3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Return all the chicken to the pan, add the vinegar and bubble until reduced by half. Drizzle over the soy sauce and honey and shake the pan to mix.
    2) Pour in a good splash of hot water and add the lemon slices. Let the liquid bubble and reduce down until syrupy, which will take about 10 minutes or so. By now the chicken should be cooked through.
    3) Transfer the chicken to a platter and sprinkle over the chopped parsley.
    4) Serve with mashed potato (boil potatoes, add milk and butter and mash together, add cooked peas and carrots and some thyme).

      I also tried this dish from the recipe. What kind of vinegar did you use? I used balsalmic.
