Also this is a dish from my childhood, the ' chicken agglassato glazed meat ': I added a corn flour polenta is topped’ to make it a hearty main dish. If you don't like polenta is also great accompanied by couscous or a simple white rice. The chicken becomes tender due to the fat that melts from its skin and Laurel gives a delicate aroma. I assure you that is delicious and I love it even the smallest.
