Il Pollo Favoloso: 10 Fabulously Easy Italian Chicken Recipes
As if we needed more proof of the culinary genius that is Italian cooking, look at what happens when you take an ordinary chicken breast and transform it into one of these Italian chicken recipes. You get the classics, of course, like a supremely simple Chicken Piccata (it’s amazing what you can do with just lemon juice, capers, shallots and a little white wine) or Chicken Parmesan (really, who doesn’t love a good chicken parm?). But the surprise may be how decidedly un-provincial Italian flavors can be, happily globetrotting alongside Indian spices in a piquant grilled chicken dish or cozying up in a cheesy Mexican-style enchilada.
The good news is that you don’t have to go to the ends of the earth to bring these flavors to your dinner table. In fact, each of these Italian-inspired chicken recipes takes no more than 30 minutes to prepare — meaning you might just have enough energy left over to whip up a little something special for dessert (tiramisu, anyone?).
How do you say chicken in Italian? Mmmmm.
