  • Butternut squash x 1
  • Cream Chicken x 1
  • Thyme
  • Garlic
  • Stock
  • Onions
  • White wine
  • Pasta:
  • 250g of OO Flour
  • 1 Egg

  • 2-4 tbsp water

Method

Prep Chicken, braise legs and wings and roast the crown in the oven with the shallot, thyme, stock and white wine for an hour.
Use the leg meat for the tortellini filling and de-bone the wings before sealing the skin in a hot pan.
Press the crown through a chinois and reserve the squash juices - slice and stew in pot with a little water if necessary to avoid base burning. When tender (approx 40mins), blitz in a thermomix.
Season and pass pasta - place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until a smooth firm dough. Rest for 1 hour, roll out and fill with picked, seasoned chicken leg meat.
Cook in boiling salted water veloute - mix equal quantities squash puree and chicken juices, blitz and season.
