Stewed chicken, but for me it will always be the “agglassato glazed meat chicken” of my childhood: a simple and good, He was unfailingly paired with a soft mashed potatoes. While we're on pumpkin season and during the holidays I decided to make it more rich and elegant and accompany it with a pumpkin puree, colorful and tasty, and I added some slices of black truffle. The chicken is called 'agglassato', Traditional term to indicate this Sicilian recipe (agglassato comes from the dialect 'aggrasciato', ie 'made fatter, tastier ') Why cook with wine and bouillon it forms a sort of creamy sauce, a & #8216; glaze & #8217;, that makes it irresistible. I also have a little secret to get a sauce even better: When cooked, remove the chicken, Filter the sauce to remove the herbs and spices and add a little flour mixed with brown butter. Like this, the sauce becomes more dense and flavorful, you will see that not doing the shoe will be impossible. Among other things, This is a dish that is prepared in a very short time and you can also do in advance. If I think of autumn or winter dinner, the taste of things good and simple and people I love, I think this dish. Have a good day.
