  • Deep fry the potatoes until golden brown, place them in a large saucepan, now fry the chicken pieces place them on top of the potatoes, season with salt ,pepper and cinnamon
  • now pour over the lemon juice and enough water to make up at least 1 inch cooking juice.
  • Bring to boil place the lid on the saucepan turn the heat down LOW and leave for 20-30 mins you do not stir this while it is cooking but tilt the saucepan left to right and circular movements to baste the chicken with the juices add a touch more water if you feel its boiling dry the potatoes will be so soft and fluffy do not be disappointed if they fall apart although they shouldn't become mash!
