  • 4. Put the cockerels in a pot, pour in 1L of water and 300g of chopped onions, and allow to cook over a medium heat for 35 mins.
  • 5. Once the cockerels are cooked, remove them and allow to reduce until you get a velvety sauce.
  • 6. Meanwhile, cook the chicken gizzard in 1/2 a lemon and the 50 g of chopped onions for around 10 mins.
  • 7. Remove from the heat, chop them into small pieces, and add them to the sauce.
  • 8. Brown the cockerels in frying oil for about 5 minutes.
  • 9. Cook the vermicelli in salted boiling water for about 10 mins, drain them, add 30 g of butter, and stir it in so that the vermicelli become coated in fat and oils.
  • 10. Arrange the sauce-covered vermicelli into a serving dish, put the cockerels in the middle and decorate using the slivered almonds and Meslalla olives.
