Port and Garlic Chicken

Ingredients

6 chicken drumsticks
15 cloves of garlic, with skins on
1 glass of ruby port
Olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation

1
Heat some olive oil in a pan. Add the garlic cloves and cook on low until lightly caramelised.
2
Season the chicken with salt and pepper, add to the pan and fry until browned on both sides.
3
Pour the port over the chicken and set it aflame. Once the flame dies down, cover, lower the heat and continue cooking.
4
When done halfway through, remove the lid and turn up the heat. Cook until the port has reduced to a syrupy sauce and the chicken is completely cooked through.

 



About

This recipe is a riff on The Urban Peasant James Barber's chicken with garlic and sherry. The garlic turns sweet and earthy and makes a great spread on crusty bread.
