Chicken with nettles

Chicken with Nettle Recipe

It’s been so long since I wanted to work with this rebellious herb, which stings you at the first touch (holds that reminds me of a few ‘un). I took advantage of a beautiful day at the edge of Lake Bourget, if the nettles are still free and abundant, it will still take about two hours in the forest, in order to harvest and adorn these wild grasses. Rather, look for a place where there is no pollution (it’s better, anyway), in the woods for example, the leaves will be protected from fallout by the trees. The nettle which enjoys a bad reputation is however excellent for health, I will not brag about these benefits to you, many sites will do it better than me. What interests me is rather the culinary side to make this Chicken with nettles. I take more and more pleasure in working with the products in nature, I returned with my dog, with this feeling of serenity? Just with the fingers pricking raw, I had nevertheless brought a pair of gloves, to pick the nettles. As soon as I arrived, with my curiosity that you know, I immediately caressed the first leaves with a little provocation, but immediately by biting, the young shoots seem harmless, yet at the end of the day, the burns are there , so to prepare your Chicken with nettles, gloves are strongly recommended. I really enjoyed making this Chicken with nettles, with this flavor from the forest.
