To fry the chicken

Heat the oil in a non-stick pan. Season the chicken, fry (skin side down) for approx. 7 mins., turn and fry for a further 3 mins. If necessary, drain off some of the cooking fat.


Combine the water, soy sauce, vinegar, lemon juice and sugar, pour into the pan and bring to the boil. Add the garlic, bay leaf and pepper, reduce the heat, cover and braise for approx. 30 mins. Remove the lid and reduce for approx. 10 mins.
