The chef went on to share the recipe of the dish, which can be easily prepared at home.
Few – Garlic cloves
Few sprigs – Fresh rosemary
Few sprigs – Fresh oregano
Some – Thyme
*Roughly chop the garlic cloves and herbs. Now take the chicken and make some gashes so that the marination seeps in well. Now add the herb and garlic mix and some salt to the chicken and allow it to marinate. “Chicken on the bone takes about 10 minutes more than boneless chicken to cook,” added the chef.
*Peel carrots and cut them.
*String the beans and cut.
*Now place the chicken on a grill pan. While you grill chicken on the bone, it is always good to use a lid to cover it up as it helps the chicken cook faster.
*Grill the veggies in the same pan as the chicken so that it absorbs all the flavours.
*Finish it off with some little stock or onion jus from the previous night.
*Take the chicken bones and put them in a pot, add a little water, some garlic and some herbs.
*Boil it for 5-6 hours. What you get is a reduced form of the stock.
*Skim away all the vegetables from it and put it on a pan to reduce.
*It should reduce to a brown-coloured, gravy kind of a sauce. This will go really well with all your meats.
Note: Buy 3-4 kg of chicken, get the bones out and make the jus. It can be kept for a period of 3-4 months.
Why you should make it
*It’s a dish for people who are quite time-bound because everything gets cooked quickly in a single pot.
*It is a protein-heavy dish.
*This is a great way to get people to actually eat healthy and consciously at the same time, said Savargaonkar.
