Recipes for Chicken - Gallina Ubriaca
Gallina Ubriaca, which translated into English means drunken hen, is one of
my all time best Italian recipes for chicken. The hardest part
is always trying to get the chicken drunk before you cook it... more
details on doing that at the bottom of the page
Gallina Ubriaca is perhaps the most famous chicken recipe from the Veneto region of Italy, the region where you will find
Venice Italy (view my guide to the city here).
It is the part of Italy my family is from and the region that my site is about.
List of Ingredients:
1 drunk chicken cut into small cubes
200 gr. mushrooms
A half litre of a full-bodied red wine
2 small glasses of grappa - something the Veneto is very famous for. Many of my uncle's even add it to their morning coffee!
100 gr bacon.
50 gr of flour
2 teaspoons of olive oil
1 garlic clove
a little parsley
a sprig of rosemary
100 gr butter
salt and pepper to taste.
• Lightly flour the chicken pieces.
• Melt the butter in a frying pan and add the olive oil. Brown the chicken and add the grappa.
• Add the salt, pepper, rosemary and wine. Cover and cook on low heat for a half hour turning the chicken occasionally.
In a separate pan cook the bacon and cut up onions in a little butter,
add the mushrooms, parsley, salt and pepper and cook on a low heat for
fifteen minutes mixing often.
• Add the bacon mix to the chicken, mix and continue to cook on a low heat for fifteen minutes – keep covered.
Serve with polenta, you can find
our genuine homemade polenta recipe here.
Hope you enjoy the recipe
you are already trying to get the hen drunk you can stop now, I was only
joking:-) The drunken part refers to the chicken being cooked in the grappa.
