  • chicken - 1
  • potatoes - 5, peeled and sliced
  • lemons - zest of 2 lemons + juice of 2 lemons + 1 sliced into circles, for presentation
  • garlic - 2 cloves, chopped
  • thyme - 2 tsp, dry
  • rosemary - 2 tsp, dry
  • salt - to taste
  • black pepper - 1 tsp
  • butter - 3 tablespoons
  • parsley - 1/2 bunch, fresh

How to cook

Take a whole chicken and clean it, rub it well with salt and pepper. Throw in some lemon zest inside. Soak it with lemon juice, about 2/3 cup (150 ml), and set it aside. Meanwhile, melt the butter and mix it with the finely chopped parsley. Put the butter in the freezer to solidify.

Cut it into thin slices and distribute it under the skin of the chicken, where you have made light cuts. Grease a shallow clay pot and put the chicken inside along with the sliced potatoes with 1 cup of hot water. Sprinkle the chicken with all the spices and chopped garlic cloves and the remaining lemon rind.

Close the pot and put the chicken to bake for 50 minutes. Remove the lid and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Serve each chicken portion with the stew sauce, lemon slices and garnish it as desired.
