Recipe: Chicken with onions

  • 25g butter
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • chicken legs or thighs
  • one onion
  • salt, pepper, chicken seasoning
  • one lemon
  • one chicken stock cube
  • one clove of garlic (optional)

Chicken might not be that expensive, but if you're on a student budget (and if you're not then boo you) then this is a great, tasty meal, and it's dirt cheap. Firstly, heat up the butter and oil until it's just about boiling.

Put the chicken thighs or chicken legs into the pot (doesn't matter if they're frozen) and brown all over on the hob (full power). Once brown, add the juice of one lemon and the chopped onion.

Leave for ten minutes, and then add one stock cube and about 100–200ml of water. Throw in a bit of salt and some pepper, and some chicken seasoning if you've got any.

Turn the hob down to halfway and put the lid on the pot. Leave for 30–40mins, or about 70mins if the chicken isn't defrosted.

The lemon won't greatly affect the chicken, but it'll make the onions nice and sweet, so that even onion-haters will like them.

Tip: There's a great butchers just off the parade, on the road which Thorntons chocolates corners, and opposite the big building site on the parade. They were doing huge bits of chicken for 50p each recently, so this meal cost us about £1.40 for two people. Bonanza!

  1. I can't get down that road, I always get stuck in Thorntons instead.
