Pollo alla Firènze

pollo_alla_firenzePollo alla Firènze meaning “Florence style chicken”  And boy, does it look messy. I could have, at least, cleaned up the plate before I took a picture of it.

This is what I made for me for supper this evening.  Brian and Tom don’t-groan-liiiiiiiiiiiike it.  I made a small side of pasta and sauce to go with it.  This is the kind of foods that I like.  T and B are more basic.  I love veggies and if I can incorporate them into a recipe I am a very happy person.  Tom and Brian had fish (haddock) sandwiches and clam chowder for supper-a taste of New England.  While I had a taste of Italy.

This recipe has a stuffing of grated carrots, spinach, garlic, mushrooms, onions and dry sherry.  The stuffing is sautéed in a pan with olive oil.  The chicken breasts are marinated in 2 cups of Sherry for a couple of hours. Then the breasts are sliced/pocketed, stuffed with the stuffing, and secured with a toothpick.  Then the stuffed breasts are dipped into a prepared Italian dressing then coated with Italian seasoned breadcrumb with grated Romano cheese.  Then baked into an oven.  This was so good that I am only sorry that B and T won’t eat it.

  1. Hi Sis, got to watching America’s next top model marathon and lost track of time, so am out surfin late. lol… The meal looks good. I wish I enjoyed cooking, but I don’t. The simpler the better I say. I fixed tuna fish salad for sandwiches. I am happy just to open a can of soup most nights. I had the box pasta in herb sauce I made last night with angel hair pasta and it was soooo goood! lol.. I never learned to cook so guess that is why I don’t care to. Most of the time I just fix me some toast and I’m happy. Very good for me, huh? lol.. Love ya Sis, hope your week-end is going well. How is Brian feeling? Better I hope.


  2. It sounds absolutely delish!!!
    Thanx for the recipe!! I will have to make this one night. I love Italian!! My kids and hubby most likely wouldn’t go for it though. Now that I think about it, they wouldn’t go for the clam chowder either, lol! The picky lot!
