    1. Place lamb pieces in a deep dish. Add oil, wine, garlic, thyme, rosemary, bay leaves, salt and chilli flakes; toss to coat pieces of lamb with marinade. Cover dish with foil; store in the fridge overnight or at least 8 hours, stirring the meat a couple of times.
    2. Heat oil in a large frying pan that can hold all the pieces of meat in one layer; add lamb, shaking off any excess marinade and cook until browned on both sides, about ten minutes.
    3. Add garlic cloves and stir in wine, a little at a time, to prevent the lamb drying out; continue cooking for 45 minutes. Add a couple of tablespoons of marinade to the pan to flavour the meat. Cook for an additional ten minutes before serving.
