Chicken in White Wine (Poulet Scarpariello)

"The name of the recipe translates to Chicken Shoemaker Style. Yum! Doesn't sound like much of a complement to the chef. Anyway, the chicken is sauteed in olive oil, then finished with garlic, white wine, and lemon juice."

  1. Now that I'm thinking about it, that whole 'turning water into wine' thing would be hugely popular. Made for ZWT7.
  2. Wonderful chicken recipe!!! I made this using a pound of thin chicken cutlets and then made 1/2 of the sauce. Quick and easy, but oh so flavorful. I served this with fettucine alfredo and green beans and it was a hit at my house. Thanks for sharing your recipe Ice Cool Kitty. Made for New Kids on the Block part of the Something Old and Something New Event.
