Watch: Johnny cooks a chicken dinner from PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds

PUBG Grub.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is quickly becoming a favourite among the Eurogamer video team. While we're hardly what you'd call pro players, there's still something undeniably fun about running around the game map, frantically gathering weapons in a bid to stay alive. Even if you die in the opening minutes, there's something about Battlegrounds that lends itself well to stories. Like the time I got confused and punched Chris to death, for instance - or the time we actually managed to win, against all odds.

We managed to place first in a squad match this week, much to our surprise, and the community was quick to suggest we take the game's congratulatory message - winner winner chicken dinner - and make it a reality. I was only too happy to oblige.

Join me in the video below as I make a winner winner chicken dinner - if you fancy making one yourself, you can find the recipe below that.

Halve the lemon, peel the garlic cloves and insert them into the flesh of the lemon.

Insert the lemon halves into the chicken cavity and roast according to the weight of the bird (most chickens will have instructions on the packaging)

On taking the chicken out of the oven, pour the cooking juices into a saucepan and heat with a tablespoon of plain flour to form a paste.
