Method

For the salsa, chop up the pineap­ple and place in a bowl. Mix with the rest of the ingredients and set aside till ready to serve. Com­bine the pep­pers, scal­lions, gin­ger, gar­lic, thyme, all­spice, nut­meg, brown sugar, soy sauce, all­spice, lemon zest and juice, olive oil, black pep­per and salt in a food pro­ces­sor or a blender. Blend un­til a smooth purée is formed, about one minute. Place chicken in a big bowl or in a zip lock bag and mix un­til thor­oughly coated with the mari­nade. Fill the bag with ½ cup water and re­frig­er­ate for at least 10 hours or up to one day. Pre­heat oven to 200° C and grease the bak­ing dish. Lay the chicken pieces into the dish and driz­zle the mari­nade on top. Place in the mid­dle rack of the oven for about 45 min­utes, un­til the chicken is well done. Fin­ish by sear­ing the chicken in a non- stick pan with but­ter, 2 min­utes each side. Place chicken on a serv­ing plate, driz­zle over with left­over juice from the bak­ing dish, and serve with pineap­ple salsa.

On a hunt: hid­dle­ston and Brie Lar­son in Kong: the lat­est in­car­na­tion of the iconic gi­ant ape

Hid­dle­ston plays Cap­tain James Con­rad, a Bri­tish spy and tracker who is in charge of the mis­sion. The ac­tor was of­fered the role while he was film­ing the thriller Crim­son Peak ( 2014). “( Pro­ducer) Thomas Tull came to visit me on the set,” Hid­dle­ston re­called. “He said, ‘ I want to talk to you about some­thing.’ He told me that he was very ex­cited about the Godzilla pic­ture that they made, and told me that they were also do­ing Kong. He said, ‘ When you fin­ish this film, come and see me.’ Later, he for­mally pitched Kong to me,” Hid­dle­ston said. “He told me, ‘ At the cen­tre, there is an ad­ven­turer who is a for­mer soldier. This re­ally be­comes his jour­ney.’”

Hid­dle­ston signed on.
