Stewed chicken with hazelnut sauce, recipe with oriental flavor
I love chicken with almost any recipe and am always encouraged to try other ways to prepare it.Yesterday I made to eat a chicken stew with hazelnut sauce that I liked so much that here I am running to explain how to do it, since it is one of those dishes with an intense flavor and very very tender meat.
You can also make this recipe using turkey, and if you do not want to use hazelnuts, you can also make the recipe with nuts, almonds or pine nuts, or a mixture of one and the other. The recipe will have a marked oriental flavor and will remind you of those Chinese restaurant dishes.

Chop the onion in fine brunoise and put it to sauté in a pan with four tablespoons of olive oil. As it begins to cook, chop the peppers into bite-size chunks and add them to the pan.
We add three tablespoons of soy sauce and the chicken cut into strips, stirring everything while the chicken changes color. At that time, we add the nuts and the homemade chicken broth, allowing it to cook over high heat for 8 minutes.
We lower the fire. While it continues to cook, remove a few hazelnuts with a tablespoon or two of broth and crush them in the mortar, reintegrating the mixture into the saucepan so that the sauce thickens a little.
We try and rectify the salt if necessary adding a little more soy sauce and serve very hot. The chicken must be very tender, being a little overcooked and the sauce must have an intense hazelnut flavor.
What to accompany the stewed chicken with hazelnut sauce
This recipe for stewed chicken with hazelnut sauce has a memory of chicken recipes from European Chinese restaurants, in which chicken, peppers and almonds or hazelnuts combine very well with soy sauce. For this reason, you can serve this chicken after stir-frying noodles cooked in the wok if you fancy a menu with an oriental flair.Tags: Vegetables And Legumes Desserts Fish
