Step 2

Find a pan and melt the butter on medium + heat. Make sure that the butter does not burn. Cut the chicken into pieces and add the butter together with bay leaves and two whole garlic. Cook until the chicken starts to color and pour over the sauce you made in the blender.

Step 3

Cook for a few minutes until you see that the sauce "cracks". You can see that the sauce cracks by the fact that the fat differs slightly from the sauce. Now turn down the heat to lower heat so it only simmer and put on the lid. Now simmer the sauce with a lid for 25 minutes until the chicken is done. Feel free to pick up a small piece of the chicken and check that it is cooked through.
