Chicken Giardiniera

"I worked with this great chef who developed this HOT & SPICY dish. It took me a few tries, but I've finally duplicated it. Serve plain, buttered pasta with it to put out the fire."

directions

  • Pound out chicken breasts, so that they cook quickly and evenly.
  • In saute pan, heat oil. Add giardiniera and garlic and saute lightly for 2-3 minutes.
  • Push giardiniera and garlic to the side of pan and add chicken.
  • Saute 2-3 minute per side, spooning pan juices and giardiniera over them.
  • DO NOT salt chicken. I made that mistake once. It was so salty, it became inedible. The giardiniera has plenty of salt on its own.
  • Plain, buttered pasta or a baked potato with cool sour cream are good sides for this spicy dish.
