The Asian ingredients make my deep-fried and roasted dishes surprisingly refreshing, so they work well in a summer menu. I love to take advantage of the long evenings and serve this outdoors for a laidback meal in the garden

Recipe

1.    The night before, pierce the chicken skin all over with a skewer, place in a non-metallic dish and pour over the fish sauce. Give it a good rub, cover and leave in the fridge overnight.

2.    The next day, heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Mix the coconut milk with the lemongrass, lime leaves and ginger. Drain the chicken of any excess fish sauce, pour the coconut mixture over and cover with foil.

3.    Cook in the oven for 15 mins, then turn down the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6, remove the foil and bake for 1 hr or until the juices run clear when a skewer is pushed into the thickest part of the thigh. Lift the chicken onto a board, cover with foil and leave to rest.

4.    Meanwhile, make the dressing. Melt the coconut cream in a pan and continue cooking until almost starting to brown. Add the curry paste and cook for 1 min until fragrant, stirring all the time. Add the coconut milk, palm sugar and fish sauce, and bring to the boil. Add the torn lime leaves, lemongrass and galangal, and cook for 20 mins, stirring frequently until the flavour intensifies.

5.    Take off the heat and add the sugar snap peas and beansprouts. Taste and season with more fish sauce or sugar if needed. Pour the curry dressing into a serving dish, and sprinkle over the coriander and Thai basil.

6.    Tear the chicken into bits and pile onto a platter. Serve with the curry dressing, cucumber salad, lime wedges and rice.
