Make the Sofrito. It consists of aromatic ingredients, in this case onion, carrots and celery, diced and sauteed in oil until caramelized with flavor. Heat the oil in a large heavy skillet.


Add the ground chicken to the sofrito breaking up the meat with a spoon or spatula. Cook until the pink is almost gone from the meat. Add the vermouth and turn up the heat.


Stir in the pureed tomatoes, tomato paste, the chicken stock and parsley. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer uncovered for one hour.
