This is a recipe my Mother has been making for years ! We came across it in 1979 in one of our local Spanish newspapers and still have the original clipping !! Makes a "different " dish to serve dinner guests !


Ingredients : (Organic where possible )

Serves 4

4 Chicken pieces with skin
6 Large juicy Oranges
1 Large Lemon
2 Garlic Cloves
4 Tbsp Brown Sugar
4 Tbsp Honey

Caramelised Chicken -


Squeeze 5 of the Oranges ( leaving one for decoration later ) and the lemon.
Add the crushed garlic and the honey to the juice.
Lay the chicken pieces in an oven ­ proof dish and pour over the juice mixture.
Leave to marinate for an hour basting frequently.

Pre heat your oven to a medium heat ( Gas 5 / 190 Celcius ).

Cook chicken for one and a half hours or until your liking.

20 minutes before end of cooking time sprinkle the brown sugar over the chicken and return to oven, this will make a crisp caramelised coating.

Decorate the dish with Orange slices from the leftover orange and serve with new potatoes and a crisp green salad.

Delicious !!
