We source our chicken from Fosse Meadows Farm in Leicestershire, renowned for its quality and taste. Whilst chicken breast has its place at the table, it’s the legs that provide much of the deep flavour that seeps into this comforting spring-dish, brightened with wild garlic and lemon zest, and mopped up with crusty bread for lunch. What’s more is that it takes very little fuss and goes from stove to tabletop in less than 45 minutes. What are you waiting for?
