- 6 chicken legs (drumsticks)
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2 shallots
- 1 to 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 Tbsp butter
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg (freshly grated)
- 1/4 tsp allspice
- about 1/2 cup water
- salt, to taste
- juice from 1-2 mandarin oranges
- parsley garnish
Cut the shallots into small sections, and slice the garlic cloves in half. Place them in a skillet or frying pan together with the oil and butter and sautee for a minute or so at medium temperature.
Add the chicken to the pan as well as the spices, and continue to sautee until the meat takes on a golden color.
Next, pour the water into the pan and add the salt. Once the water has heated, allow the chicken to simmer on medium-low temperature until it is very tender (probably at least 30 minutes).
Serve the chicken with a splash of fresh mandarin orange juice and a parsley garnish.
