- Preheat oven to 190* C (374* F) Fan.
- Tie the legs of the chicken together with kitchen twine. Do the same with the wings and place in a narrow pot.
- Season with salt and pepper. Use a small amount of oil and brown on all sides.
- Remove from heat and transfer to a plate.
- Discard the oil from the pot but you want all of the bits stuck on the bottom of the pot. These will help thicken the sauce and also give it a very tasty caramel flavor later on.
- Place the chicken back in the baking pan along with the rest of the ingredients.
- Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 1 ½ hours. 30 minutes before it’s done, remove the foil so it can turn golden.
- Baste the chicken with the juices as often as possible to make it as tasty and juicy as possible.
- The lemon will make the milk “split” or “curdle” but don’t let this worry you.
- When ready, tear the chicken into pieces to remove the bones.
- Serve with collard greens, sautéed spinach or creamy mashed potatoes along with the sauce from the pan.
