Start with the spice blend. Mix all the spices together and rub the chicken with it. Save the spices that remain. Put the whole chicken on a can of beer (or use a special pan for this) and leave the chicken on the barbecue for 45 minutes to an hour. When your chicken is cooked you can serve it as you like.

For the Texel hussar salad, boil the potatoes with some salt for 15 minutes until al dente. Let the potatoes cool and cut into small square cubes, season with salt and pepper. Next, cut the gherkin into small cubes and save some acid. Also cut the apple into small cubes and add the remaining pickle acid to the apple. Leave this for a while, this will stop the apple from discolouring.

Drain the apple and squeeze the last bit of acid from the apple and add to the potato. Cut the onion into small cubes and add to the mixture. Season all the chopped items with the rest of the ingredients and gently stir everything together. Divide among four plates and garnish with egg, onion, mayonnaise, rocket, ham and a little chilli powder. Tip: serve with warm fried baguette.

For the spicy sauce, take a large cast-iron pan and fry the bacon and onion in it. Use a little olive oil if necessary. Cut the chillies into rings and add. Add all the remaining ingredients for the spicy sauce and cook until a thick sauce forms.

Serve the chicken, Texel hussar salad and spicy sauce together.

Enjoy your meal!
