The gourmet roast chicken recipe from my kitchen you will find in this article. For this I have used an organic chicken and added all sorts of fine ingredients.
This dish is not cheap, besides dried morels and truffles, veal stock is used.
Treat yourself and your loved ones to this chicken dish on a special day. You’ll be talking about this meal for a long time!
Before you go, one more tip: Don’t be intimidated by the noble ingredients, truffles are available preserved in a jar at the supermarket. The same goes for the morels. I can get by for a good year with one package of morels. This is not an ingredient for every day!
The following instructions with step by step photos and cooking video will now accompany you in your kitchen if desired. I wish you much fun and good success.

3. Cooking Tips for Roast Chicken, Sauce and Puree
Some cooking tips will make your kitchen life easier and increase your cooking fun and knowledge!
–> Season the cocktail tomatoes devoutly with a little sugar and salt, then these caramelize nicer.
–> You could also add two halved shallots to the mixture in the roaster.
–> Ready-bought veal stock is usually very salty, so I did without salt completely.
–> You can harmonize the taste of the sauce with butter, sugar and some red wine.
–> The cooking time of the chicken is always a little different. Cook the chicken as desired.
–> I have based the mashed potatoes on the recipe of star chef Joël Robuchon. Check out the mashed potatoes recipe.
–> If you get fresh morels, please cook them in the sauce for at least 12 minutes.
–> Fresh morels are poisonous and lose this effect by drying or longer cooking.
–> The roasted tomato paste provides the color and the deep flavor of the sauce.
–> Always mix cornstarch in cold liquid and then bring to a boil. This way there are no lumps!
–> Do not boil the sauce after adding the truffle slices. The aroma of the truffles is better preserved this way.
–> You can also vary this dish with guinea fowl, corn chicken, poussins, pigeon or quail.
–> The smaller the bird, the shorter the cooking time 🙂
