For Making the Chicken
Place chicken on a flat work surface and start loosening the skin. Use your fingers and start at the breasts gradually moving towards the wing. The skin is loosened by gently pushing the fingers between the meat and skin. Take the thin truffle slices and put them under the loosened skin over wings and breasts. Cover chicken with the leaves of sage and press the skin down in place. Use pepper and salt for seasoning. Heat the oven at 350⁰F. Take a large pan and fry the pieces of chicken on the sides with skin. Put the chicken in the oven for 10-15 minutes only.
For Making the Sauce
While the chicken is cooking, make the sauce. Take a saucepan and add chicken stock to it. Cook it until the stock is condensed to half of its original quantity. This will take about 30 minutes. Next, add lemon juice and Dijon mustard to it. Add the melted butter and in case it is in its solid form, melt it over flame. Whisk continuously until the butter is thoroughly emulsified. The mixture is then seasoned with pepper and salt. The sauce is ready. Let it rest at room temperature.
In order to serve, take a warmed platter and transfer the chicken to it. Spoon out the sauce on top of the chicken and sides. Take a pan and sauté Jerusalem artichokes. Caramelize them. Serve with these caramelized artichokes on the sides.
Bottom-line, this is your chance of making sure that your efforts to give your guests a feast of a lifetime have paid off tastefully.
