Nothing says good old Italian comfort food like a steaming bowl of Chicken Cacciatore over warm pasta, dusted with freshly grated parmesan cheese. Every Italian cook has their own version of this classic chicken dish. It’s savory, falling off the bone delicious and oh-so-easy to prepare. The perfect supper for a cold winter’s night. Plus, your house will smell fantastic while it’s cooking. (Excuse me while I lick my fingers.) Salud!
The first time we ate Chicken Vesuvio, Mike and I were in Chicago on tour and we discovered this wonderfully fragrant and incredibly rich chicken dish in a little Italian restaurant on Rush Street. We were completely smitten and probably returned to indulge in Chicken Vesuvio a dozen times over two months! The chicken was loaded with flavor, the potatoes roasted golden and there were soft pieces of garlic to slather on each bite. Heaven!
