The aroma of this dish takes me back to my days waiting tables at my Dad’s restaurant. Whenever I served Chicken Scarpariello to a table the lemon-garlic scent of this dish as I carried it across the dining room never failed to make me hungry.
A simple, but delicious old Italian favorite, Chicken Marsala is always appreciated. It is also one of the most requested recipes on our website. Naturally, you can also prepare veal scallopine alla marsala.
Grilled Chicken with Salmoriglio
It has gotten so that I cannot have a barbecue without making this fragrant and tasty chicken dish on the grill. Everybody expects it, and there is never a piece of chicken or a drop of Salmoriglio left over. Instead of marinating the chicken and basting it while cooking, which causes a lot of flare ups, I like to use the technique described below (we call it the flash-pan technique). I can’t even begin to describe the excitement and buzz in the air when the guests see us coming out of the kitchen to the grill with the hot pans.
This lemony chicken dish is a quick and easy way to give your family a nice treat on a weeknight. Team it up with some broccoli sautéed in oil and garlic as a side dish.
