Here I have for you an old French recipe that I remember my mom preparing in the kitchens when I was a young man. The scent of citrus wafted through the air and made such a wonderful aroma. I remember the combination of sweet and savory that I would go (and still do) go crazy for. Do it French style and use the thigh meat – it will reward you with immense flavour and tender texture.
12 chicken legs/thighs
Zest and juice of 4 lemons
1 teaspoons of brown sugar
Sea salt and fresh cracked pepper
1/4 cup of maple syrup
