    dianegrapegrower's Note:

    This delicious pairing comes from "The Italian Country Table" by Lynne Caspar. It's become a family favorite in my house, as well as a dish we frequently use for entertaining. Don't let the ingredient list scare you - it's minced together and rubbed into the chicken. Roasting is largely unattended.

      I think I may have used too much wine, but everyone at dinner this past Sunday LOVED the taste, and so did I!!! Sticking the herbs and pancetta underneath the skin - never thought of that before. I did use some white meat too and had to make extra to cover the potatoes. It was fine and I'll definitely make it again. Thanks.
