Home Cooking/Chicken Italiano recipe


An Italian restaurant close by serves a dish "Chicken Italiano" which is several cuts of chicken breast combined with broccoli and sliced mushrooms served over pasta.  Wonderful!
Any ideas on a similar sounding recipe that I might try at home?
Thanks much


Hi Len.  Sounds like you had a great experience.  I'm not sure what else what was in your dish since "Chicken Italiano" can mean many different recipes.  See if the recipe below looks like it might be the one.  If there are different ingredients in your dish, let me know and we can define it further.  Happy dining.

Cooking has been my passion and avocation for more than 45 years. My grandmother (‘Nani’) taught me the skills needed to cook a complete Sunday dinner by the time I was ten years old. I still treasure the memory of those magnificent aromas wafting through her kitchen. My background includes part time restaurant work and meal preparation for large organizations and churches, as well as planning and cooking hundreds of meals for dinner parties, family gatherings, and business functions.
