Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 200C. Pound oregano, garlic, chillies, paprika and 2 tsp sea salt in a mortar and pestle to a coarse paste (or process in a small food processor), add oil and season to taste. Place in a snap-lock bag with chicken, massaging well to coat thoroughly, and set aside for 10 minutes to marinate.
  • 02
  • For corn relish, cook corn in a saucepan of boiling water until tender (5-10 minutes), drain, refresh and drain well. Combine in a bowl with coriander and spring onion. Just before serving, add oil and lime juice, season to taste and stir to combine well.
  • 03
  • Heat a large ovenproof frying pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken skin-side down, cover with a piece of baking paper, weight with a saucepan and cook until skin is golden (5-6 minutes). Remove pan and baking paper, turn and cook until browned (2-3 minutes). Turn once again so chicken is skin-side down, transfer to oven and cook through (3-4 minutes).

  • Meanwhile, for spicy mayonnaise, combine ingredients in a bowl, season to taste and set aside.
