5ml curry paste

120ml red wine
1 lemon
300ml mayonnaise
120ml cream
15ml apricot jam
1 bay leaf

1. Select a saucepan into which the chicken will fit. Cut the lemon in half and stuff into the chicken cavity. Place the chicken into the saucepan and add the bouquet garni, vegetables and season with the salt and pepper.
2. Fill the saucepan with water until it covers 2/3 of the chicken and then bring to the boil. Cover and cook the chicken for 1 1/2 hours, until the chicken's juices run clear. 3. Once the chicken is cooked, transfer to a large bowl and cover with the liquid from the saucepan. Once the chicken has cooled, skin and bone the chicken. Then cut into small pieces.

5. Beat the mayonnaise into the sauce and fold in the cream. Squeeze the lemon juice from the remaining lemon half and stir in the chicken.
6. Garnish with a sprig of watercress.
