Time Taken 1 hour 30 minutes
6 garlic cloves peeled
1 tbsp olive oil
8 chicken drumsticks and thighs
1 celery heart roughly chopped
2 red onion thickly sliced
12 black olives stones
1 x 335g cherry tomatoes
- Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C, fan 180 degrees C, gas 6. Rub the Sweet Chilli sauce on to the chicken pieces. You can slash the chicken pieces first to get the flavour to permeate right into the centre.
- Cut the lemon into 8 wedges and remove any pips. In a roasting tin, toss together the lemon, celery, onions and tomatoes with some seasoning in 150ml water and arrange chicken pieces over the top. Cover loosely with baking paper.
- Bake in the oven for 30 minutes then remove the paper and turn up the oven to 220 degrees C, fan 200 degrees C, Gas 7 and cook a further 30-40 minutes until it is completely cooked through.
- Serve with herby leaf salad or some steamed jasmine rice.
