Chicken and potatoes in the oven
One whole chicken about 1 kilo
One kilo potatoes.
5 or more small onions
Bay leaves (5)
Thyme, salt, peper and a little cinnamon
One cup of corn oil
One cup water
First wash and clean the chicken very well. (Leave it for a while in a bowl full of
water and some lemon juice.)
Put the whole chicken in the middle of a sauce pan or pyrex. Peel the
potatoes and cut them in the middle. Wash them and put them around the
chicken. Peel the small onions (But do not cut them in very small pieces).
Put them in different places all around the chicken.
Take a small onion and put it in the hole of the chicken. In there you must
put one bay leaf ,salt, pepper, thyme , a little cinnamon and some drops of
lemon juice. On the top of the chicken put some more salt, pepper, thyme ,
cinnamon and another bay leaf. Finally put the oil and the water.
Put all in hot oven and cook it for about one hour. In the meantime in
half an hour you must open the oven and turn the chicken on the other side.
Otherwise it will not be cooked in both sides.
Make sure that there is enough water in the saucepan until the food is well cooked.
Otherwise it will burn.
GOOD LUCK !!!
