Ingredients: 1 whole chicken, 700 grams of potatoes, 1 large onion, 1 tbs of dried marigold, 10 tbs of oil and salt (amount dependent upon personal preference).

PreparationChicken: Cut the chicken length ways but do not separate into two halves. Rub oil and salt on to both sides of the chicken. Flatten the chicken out and add to a pan of hot oil and press it down.

Use a pestle or any suitable heavy object to keep the chicken flat so that it cooks evenly. Fry both sides of the chicken.

When the chicken is cooked, turn off the heat and remove the chicken from the pan and cut into pieces. Do not discard the oil as it will be used to fry the potatoes.
