For this recipe you will need :
2 Plates of freshly prepared pasta (500g of compact cassava paste) at the local exotic store.
1 Liter of water.
In a salad bowl put the water and thoroughly dilute the placali. Put the chicken in the bowl twice in succession.Incline the salad bowl which contains the placali and let it sit for some time (about 30 min). After this time of laying, pour the white liquid that is on the surface and spill the rest in a pan with a handle and put it to heat (on low fire) by constantly turning with the pestle of placali.
Cooking the placali requires constant presence.When the liquid begins to cook turn vigorously with the wooden pestle by scraping the bottom and edges of the pan until a consistent and homogeneous paste is obtained.Wet your hand to scrape the dough that is on the edge of the pan and on the pestle.
When cooking spill the placali in a mortar

Engagement Roast Chicken
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Remove and discard the chicken giblets. Pat the outside dry. Liberally salt and pepper the inside of the chicken. Cut the lemons in quarters, place 2 quarters in the chicken along with the garlic and reserve the rest of the lemons. Brush the outside of the chicken with olive oil and sprinkle the chicken liberally with salt and pepper. Tie the legs together with kitchen string and tuck the wing tips under the body of the chicken. Place the chicken in a small (11 by 14-inch) roasting pan. (If the pan is too large, the onions will burn.) Place the reserved lemons and the sliced onions in a large bowl and toss with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper. Pour the mixture around the chicken in the pan.
Roast the chicken for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, until the juices run clear when you cut between a leg and a thigh. Remove the chicken to a platter, cover with aluminum foil, and allow to rest for 10 minutes while you prepare the sauce, leaving the lemons and onions in the pan.
Place the pan on top of the stove and turn the heat to medium-high. Add the wine and stir with a wooden spoon to scrape up the brown bits. Add the stock and sprinkle on the flour, stirring constantly for a minute, until the sauce thickens. Add any juices that collect under the chicken. Carve the chicken onto a platter and serve with the lemons, onions, and warm sauce.
