Ingredients of sour chicken thighs


Take the free-range chicken legs, wash them under running water and make sure there are no feather residues; if so, just burn them on a low flame. Take and season the chicken in a saucepan with salt, pepper, honey, lemon juice, lime juice and a mixture prepared with rosemary, bay leaves and sage. Leave to marinate for a few minutes.

In an ovenproof dish, put some oil - if you like chilli pepper -, place the legs with the marinating liquid and sprinkle them with grated ginger. Place in the oven, previously heated to 200°C. When the thighs are golden brown, pierce the skin to release the fat.

Halfway through cooking, add the meat broth and the remaining lemon juice. Finish cooking by turning the legs from time to time, remove the aromas and serve it by sprinkling it with the cooking juices, adding fresh parsley and cherry tomatoes. An exotic and local goodness.
