It is always economical to buy a whole chicken. You can also ask your butcher to chop it up for you. This is a lovely dish, with a fried effect but in reality there is very little oil, just two tablespoons of olive oil.
- 1 large chicken
- 100ml white wine
- 1/4 teaspoon stevia
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- a rosemary sprig
- 5 garlic cloves, peeled and grounded
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
- Chop the chicken into 6 pieces or ask your butcher to prepare it for you.
- Heat the olive oil in a heavy frying pan and add the garlic on very moderate heat.
- Once browned, add the chicken pieces and fry for 5 minutes each side, until golden.
- Add the rosemary and season.
- Add the wine, turn down the heat and cover. Simmer for 20 minutes gently until the chicken is fully cooked, turning after 10 minutes. The wine should reduce.
- During the last 5 minutes of cooking, add the stevia as this gives is a very rounded flavour.
- Turn off the heat and leave it covered for 5 minutes to rest before serving. Serve with boiled potatoes or crispy roasted potatoes lightly tossed in couscous.
