Agglassato glazed meat chicken (stew), with pumpkin puree and truffle

Stewed chicken, ma per me sarà sempre il “pollo agglassato” 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 sicilian stewed chicken is also called chicken ‘agglassato’, traditional term to indicate this recipe that you do not only with chicken, but also with touches of beef or veal inside (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;, which makes the dish irresistible. Usually, when you prepare the agglazed beef, you use the sauce to season the dough.

I also have a little secret to get an even better sauce: When cooked, remove the chicken (browse among all my CHICKEN RECIPES, I recommend), 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, the stewed or agglassed chicken is a dish that is prepared in no time and that you can also make 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. Obviously take a look at all my RECIPES WITH PUMPKIN and, since we're in the period, even at RECIPES WITH TRUFFLES. Have a nice day.
