Chicken Salad, potatoes, Savoy cabbage with bacon and sour cream. I will tell you, I'm really proud of this dish, I wanted to reinterpret a traditional German dish, grilled chicken wrapped in bacon with roasted potatoes and sauerkraut. In my interpretation, This dish from osteria has become an Italian salad, light and color, where the chicken is first boiled in aromatic broth and then browned to grid, boiled potatoes, the cabbage stew. To lighten Apple crisp and juicy bits, While the bacon is just browned until it becomes crispy. Could not miss the sour cream, another must-German, whom I love very much and that I find really versatile: Here I flavored with fresh mixed herbs and grated lemon rind.
