1. Put the chicken in a bowl and throw in the garlic and chilli, plus  big splashes of soy sauce, fish sauce and oil. Add enough water to cover the chicken.

2. Marinate it for an hour or as long as you can.

3. Heat the pan so it's hot, brown the chicken on either side, then place in the oven at the hottest it can go till cooked. Turning so that both sides are browned.
