GORDON RAMSAY’S STICKY LEMON CHICKEN

GORDON RAMSAY'S STICKY LEMON CHICKEN
 
Ingredients
  • 1 large chicken, jointed into 8–10 pieces
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 - 4 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 head of garlic, halved horizontally
  • A few thyme sprigs
  • Generous splash of sherry vinegar (or apple cider vinegar)
  • 2 Tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 3 Tbsp honey
  • 1 lemon, finely sliced (ideally with a mandolin)

Instructions
  1. Season the chicken joints with salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a large sauté pan. (maybe add a tablespoon of real butter too)
  2. Brown the chicken pieces (in batches if necessary), together with the garlic and thyme sprigs, over a high heat for two to three minutes on each side until golden brown.
  3. Return all the chicken to the pan, add the sherry vinegar and bubble until reduced by half. Drizzle over the soy sauce and honey and shake the pan to combine the juices.
