Recipe Test: Cook’s Illustrated Chicken Canzanese

Cook's Illustrated Chicken Canzanese

This weekend’s episode was Chicken Canzanese and it looked so good I had to give it a try.  I was not disappointed nor was the family!  The chicken skin was crisp, the interior was moist and the sauce was fantastic.    This is a chicken meal that you could definitely serve to company and was perfect for a nice Sunday dinner.  It isn’t really a mid-week meal as it took too long, but it was well worth it if you have the time.  Of course, since I could easily live on just mashed potatoes and gravy (well except for pizza and maybe some desserts) of course I had to make some mashed potatoes to go with it, and for the almost healthy vegetable, some brown sugar glazed carrots.  (Did I mention the sauce was phenomenal – potatoes and gravy for lunch anyone?)  The recipe for Cook’s Illustrated Chicken Canzanese is here.  It uses simple, fresh ingredients and instructions that were easy to follow.  I did make a double batch and used bacon because I didn’t have prosciutto but otherwise did exactly what the recipe called for.  I give it a full five stars and according to the family ratings – once a week, once a month, once a year and please, please never again – it rated a once a week!

  1. That sauce does look phenomenal. Potatoes and gravy are one of my favorite lunches!

    There is nothing in that image that says no to me…even the carrots look scrumptious.
