This recipe was adapted from the one in Starting With Ingredients: Quintessential Recipes For The Way We Really Cook (2006, Running Press) by Aliza Green.
3 cups (about 2 large onions) sliced red onions1 tbsp finely chopped garlic2 tsp finely chopped hot green chillies1 tsp grated fresh ginger3 dried bay leaves1 tsp dried thyme1 tsp coarsely ground black peppersalt to taste1 cup fresh lemon juice1 cup water½ cup canola or vegetable oil, divided1 (1-1.3kg) chicken drumsticks
In a shallow, nonreactive (not metal) baking dish, combine the onions, garlic, chillies, ginger, bay leaves, thyme, pepper and salt. Add the lemon juice, water, ¼ cup oil, and chicken. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, or up to overnight.
Remove the chicken from the marinade and pat dry with paper towels. Strain the marinade liquid, reserving both liquid and solids. The onions will have turned pink from the reaction to the lemon juice.
Heat ¼ cup oil in a large, heavy skillet and brown the chicken on all sides. Transfer the cooked chicken to a plate.
Pour off most of the oil from the skillet. Add the reserved solids to the pan and cook for about 5 minutes over moderate heat, or until the onions are soft and lightly coloured. Return the chicken (and any juices) to the skillet. Add the marinade, bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer about 25 minutes, or until the chicken is tender. Serve with hot boiled rice.
