Rice with pitu caleya recipe

    For rice lovers

    In the peasant houses they raised chickens and free-range roosters for the large religious-festive family celebrations (weddings, baptisms and communions), or as a gift in domestic neighborhood collaborations (slaughter of the gochu, entrapment of corn, etc.).

    The gallu de corral -pitu de caleya as we call it here in Asturias-, to be seasoned, must be approximately one year old. The farm-grown gallu barely exceeds two months. Keep it in mind.

    • 4 rice wells
    • ½ kg of chicken

    Rice with pitu caleya recipe

    • 1 Brown the chicken, previously marinated with garlic and salt, in a saucepan with boiling oil; then, add finely chopped onion, parsley and garlic and sauté for a few minutes; Later, add water or poultry broth and let it continue cooking until it reaches its point.
    • 2 Pour the rice into the casserole, sauté a little with the chicken and its broth and add more broth up to the precise proportion (double the amount of broth as rice) and a few strips of roasted red pepper. If desired, color with saffron.
    • 3 Boil everything over high heat for 10 minutes and then for another 10 minutes over moderate heat. Remove from heat and let rest for 5 min.
      Serve in the same pot.

    NOTE: . The village pitu has darker and harder meat than the cultivated or farmed one. Its cooking time, therefore, is longer than that required by the farm..
