Clarify 50g of butter. Sear the poultry pieces in a roasting pan on the skin side until golden brown. Turn the poultry pieces to the other side and brown them briefly, extinguish with a little cider and cook on a low temperature in the stove for 40 minutes, pouring the resulting juice or clear soup from time to time.
