Fill the baking tray with approx. 5cm of water or to just below level of the baking rack. Place the baking rack on top of the water and line with foil.

      For the lemon sauce, peel the lemon zest and squeeze it. Put the lemon zest and juice, chicken stock, garlic clove and thyme sprigs in a pot. Bring liquid to a boil. Immediately simmer for 5 to 10 minutes to reduce and thicken the sauce. Remove the sauce from the heat, remove the garlic and thyme. Let it cool briefly.
