Authentic Italian Cooking

Cockerel, Italy-style

Cockerel has a tender and delicate meat, ideal for children too. It is suitable for a lot of recipes. Have you ever tried to cook it on the plate or the grill, simply halved and flavored with Mediterranean herbs (rosemary, bay leaves ...)? It tastes fantastic and the recipe does not require long time too!

    Cockerel, why to choose it?

    I have just indicated one reason in my introduction or rather two. The ease and speed of cooking ;))
    Now some news about its nutritional values. It has white meat with high nutritional value. Do you have any idea how many calories are there in a 500g cockerel, roasted without added fat? 380! at least this is what the site of the most well-known Italian producer says.
    Almost no cholesterol.
    Plentiful protein: 60 grams.
    Its meat is easily digestible.
    If you consider everything, you should add it to your family weekly diet plan. Then I remember you that the Mediterranean diet recommends the use of white meat.

    In Italy we have the habit to cook often meat together with seasonal fruit. I tested this recipe in my fall get-togethers with friends and relatives repeatedly. So I can safely recommend it to you!
