Chicken Agrodolce

Chicken AgrodolceDelizioso! This colorful, sweet and sour Italian-style chicken dish was developed at the Art Institute of Charlotte, Charlotte, North Carolina.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 whole chicken, cut into 8 pieces
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, diced finely
1 carrot, peeled and diced finely
1 celery stalk, diced finely
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon dried rosemary, minced or crushed
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, drained
1 red bell pepper, julienned
1 green bell pepper, julienned
1 yellow bell pepper, julienned
3/4 cup white wine
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

Cooking Directions:

  1. Season pieces of chicken with salt and pepper.
  2. In large Dutch oven or oven-proof, lidded skillet, warm olive oil over medium high heat.
  3. Place chicken in pan in single layer (in batches, if necessary), and cook chicken, turning, until well browned, about 10 minutes per side. Remove chicken from pan and set aside.
  4. Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C).
  5. To pan on stove, add onion, carrot and celery; sauté until slightly softened, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add garlic, rosemary and oregano; sauté one minute more. Add tomatoes and peppers; cook 3 to 4 minutes. Add wine, increase heat to high and boil until liquid reduces by half, about 8 minutes. Add vinegar.
