It consists of breaded chicken and velvety tomato sauce topped with mozzarella and parmesan cheese. Try it with a side of pasta for a truly authentic Italian experience, or balance the richness of the dish with a light salad.

2. Chicken Marsala

Chicken marsala contains a winning combination of sautéed chicken cutlets, a smooth marsala wine sauce, and plump mushrooms. The sauce makes the chicken virtually melt in your mouth, and the mushrooms provide a tasty pop of robust earthiness.

3. Chicken Scarpariello

Chicken scarpariello is a buffet of flavors and textures: sweet and sour, tangy and spicy, tender and firm. They all come together to create a unique Italian dish made of juicy chicken, sweet peppers, onions, and potatoes in a vinegar-infused sauce.
