Sunday Chicken


Serves 6



1.5 kg whole chicken

6 spring onions

8 carrots

3 celery stalks

half glass of white wine

half glass of olive oil

1 tbs dry ground garlic (or fresh one)

1 tsp pepper

2 liters of stock (or water)



In a big casserole, fry the garlic with the olive oil.


Press the chicken with your hands (and make it a bit flat). Put the chicken into the casserole. Let it fry for 10-12 minute turning it upside down every now and then.

Add 1 tbs of salt and the pepper.


Add hot stoke or the water. Bring to boil and let simmer for 1h (low heat). Check doneness and set aside. Serve warm with its own broth and vegetables (I love to drench bread with it), or you could serve it with steamed rice.
