I think James may have put 2 litre in to accommodate a larger chook. I just put a very large chook in the pot and 1 litre only comes up its side, so have rolled it over half way through simmering.
It's a delicious way to cook a chicken though - very more-ish - and leftovers even better.

I cook this recipe all the time, it is one of my favourites as it is quick and easy, I found that one litre of water works much better than two tho as it just took too long to reduce two litres.
