  • Panaskan dulu pan besi dalam berdasar tebal di atas api sedang/besar utk mencegah perlekatan nantinya. Mskkan olive oil, hanya cukup menutupi dasar pan. Setelah panas, mskkan bbrp ptg ayam (jangan berjejal di dlm pan). Masak & balik ayam sampai permukaannya kecoklatan. Kmd masak sisa ayam. Sisihkan ayam.
  • Tambah sedikit olive oil ke pan kmd masak sayuran bergantian hingga kecoklatan juga. Pertama masak wortel, kmd seledri, bombay & baw.putih terakhir krn hanya membutuhkan wkt sebentar.

Ingredients

  • 1¼ kg whole Chicken/4 Cornish game hens
  • 250-300 gr large Carrots, 40 cloves Garlic
  • 300 gr Yellow onions, 4-6 Celery ribs
  • 1 tbsp fresh chopped Rosemary, 2 Bay leaves
  • 2 tbsp Corn starch+enough cold water-mix
  • ½ lt Sparkling wine*, 500 ml Chicken broth*
  • small sprig of Thyme & of Sage, Olive oil
  • 1 tbsp dried Oregano, a pinch of Sugar
  • Fish Sauce, enough ground Pepper & Salt
  • enough Fresh lemon juice & Lemon zest
  • chopped Flat leaf parsley

Directions

  • Thoroughly wash the chicken in cold water; pat dry. Cut the chicken into 8-10 pcs (cut up chicken at the joints; breast into halves/quarters; back in half). Remove as much fat as possible. Set the chicken aside. Cut carrot & celery into 1 inch diagonal chunks, & cut onion into 8-root end on.
  • Heat a deep, heavy bottom iron pan on medium/high to eliminate sticking; then add olive oil to just cover the bottom of the pan. After the oil shimmer, add in few pcs of the dried-off chicken (do not crowd) to brown. Then brown the rest. Set the chicken aside.
  • Add more oil into the pan, and then brown the vegetables (one kind at a time). Brown the carrots first & then celery, onions & garlic last because it only takes a few moments. Set the vegetables aside. Pour the Champagne & broth into the pan to deglaze. Cook & scrape up the flavorful brown bits.
  • Preheat oven to 325º F. Place chicken into a braising pot; put in the vegetables; then pour in hot liquid. Add in bay leaves, chopped rosemary, oregano, sage & thyme. Season with 1 tbsp of fish sauce, enough salt & ground pepper. Bring everything to boiling on the stove. Transfer the pot to the oven & simmer for 30-40 min (an instant read thermometer placed into fleshy part of a thigh should read 170º F. Or just continue to cook at a low simmer on top of the stove.
  • Sauce: Pour the corn starch mixture a little at a time into the bubbling sauce at various spots and stir a bit until slightly thickened & opaque. Season the sauce by adding a few drops of lemon juice, some lemon zest, sugar, fish sauce or salt & ground pepper. Remove from the heat.
  • Allow flavors to marry in the refrigerator overnight; the dish will taste much better on the next day. Reheat the dish on the stove/microwave. Adjust seasoning if necessary. Add chopped parsley to freshen the flavors. Place the desired chicken piece on a heated plate; add vegetables & top with the sauce. Serve them with a simply dressed green salad & fresh baguettes or spätzle. You can also serve them with additional root vegetables such as: parsnips, turnips, potatoes, celery root, etc. Yield: 6-8 servings, with lots of veggie and sauce leftovers.
  • * Use 235-475 ml of dry Vermouth instead of sparkling wine with the chicken broth, or just use 1 liter of chicken broth without the sparkling wine.
