Chicken Canzanese

A few weeks ago, we had a (much needed) lazy Saturday.  No birthday parties to go to.  No errands to run.  Nothing to do but putter around the house and catch up on some DVRed TV shows.  I wound up watching one of my favorite public television shows — America’s Test Kitchen from Cook’s Illustrated.  This is one of my favorite cooking shows, made by the folks who bring me 2 of my favorite cooking magazines — Cook’s Illustrated and Cook’s Country.  I love their scientific approach to all things food!

The episode that caught my eye was for Chicken Canzanese (can-zan-ay-see) — a classic slow cooked comfort food. 

Is It a Keeper?

This was the PERFECT Sunday supper!  The flavor was unbelievable!  I loved the way the flavors were layered in…first with the prosciutto and garlic and finishing with the fresh Rosemary and lemon.  The chicken was so succulent.  I used bone-in, skin-on chicken breast instead of thighs.  And, the sauce was very flavorful and perfect for the mashed potatoes I served on the side.

The feedback from my family was unanimous — IT’S A KEEPER!  And, I couldn’t agree more!  I will be making this great dish over and over again!  My 5 year old even said that this is new favorite dinner of all time!  Move over beer braised short ribs….there’s a new king in town!
