Chicken Vesuvio

1 May

Chicken Vesuvio is a traditional Italian dish.  This stove-top braise is incredibly delicious, full of delicate flavors.

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.
