225ml olive oil
2 small chickens, each cut into 8 pieces (skin left on)
6 cloves garlic, peeled
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
3 bay leaves
1/2 pint dry white wine
12 manzanilla green olives
mashed potato and frisee salad, to serve
Heat the oil in a deep frying pan, then fry the chicken over a high heat for about 5 minutes on each side until browned.
Add the garlic, thyme and bay leaves, then add the wine – take care as it will splutter so put the lid on quickly. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 15 – 20 minutes until the chicken is tender. Season with salt. Stir in the olives and serve with mash and salad.
