DIRECTIONS

  • Generously sprinkle chicken on both sides with salt and pepper.
  • Over medium heat, melt olive oil and butter in a large pan that you can fit all chicken pieces in without crowding.
  • (Note: pan must have a lid) Add chicken, skin side down, and cook slowly until chicken is golden brown color.
  • Turn pieces over, add onions, carrots, and pumpkin and cook until chicken is golden brown.
  • Once the chicken is browned, let it and the vegetables cook slowly together for 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Add about 1 3/4 c of hot stock and simmer over low heat for 30-35 minutes, slightly uncovered, checking occasionally to add more stock, if needed.
  • Transfer chicken pieces to a large serving platter.
  • Add walnuts and sage to the pot and cook for two minutes.
  • Spoon vegetables onto the serving platter around the chicken, and pour the remaining sauce in the pot over the chicken.
  • Sprinkle reserved sage and walnuts over the dish to garnish.
