Method :

Use a sharp knife to score, or make small cuts, all over the chicken.

Mix together all the other ingredients and rub all over the chicken, ensuring the mix goes deep into the cuts.

Marinate in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours. Pour 4 cups of water in a deep pot.

Place an upside-down plate in the pot and set the chicken on the plate.

Turn the heat up high to bring the water to the boil. Reduce the heat, cover the pot and seal the edges with a strip of dough.

Cook for 30-35 minutes, then remove the seal. Take the chicken out and serve.
