Chicken Vesuvio

1 May

Chicken Vesuvio, or Pollo alla Vesuvio, is another recipe from the cookbook, Whatever Happened to Sunday Dinner? by Lisa Caponigri.  Chicken Vesuivo is a simple stove-top braise that is incredibly delicious, giving you super tender chicken with a wonderful light flavor.  Just be sure to brown the chicken and potatoes well before proceeding with the recipe – the caramelization adds lot of flavor and the browned bits stuck to the bottom of the pan become the basis of a fantastic pan sauce.

When making this dish, I halved the ingredients from the original recipe.  Mainly, because the original recipe serves 8 to 10 people, and I needed no where near that much.  I did, however, keep the 2 cans of artichokes.  I like artichokes and think the more the merrier in this dish.  If you don’t feel the same way I do about artichokes, simply add only 1 (14 ounce) can of artichokes, and this way they wont be as present in the dish.
