Advice

For a impeccable result, we advise you to buy high quality chicken, high outside and without the use of antibiotics. If you prefer, you can replace it with the turkey.

We recommend that you let the chicken rest in the marinade liquid as many hours as possible: this way it will be very tender and super fragrant. If you wish, you can vary the vegetables used and add the aromatic herbs that you prefer, such as sage, mint, parsley or basil. If you don’t like white wine vinegar, you can substitute it with that of apples or pomegranates, sweeter and less acidic.

storage

Soaked chicken can be stored in the refrigerator, in a special airtight container, for 2-3 days. Freezing is not recommended.
