Julie's Wine Friendly Recipe Box
This is a recipe I wrote down while watching one of Lidia Bastianich’s cooking shows BFN—Before Food Network. Ed and I named it Chicken Lidia because we didn’t catch the name of the recipe. A great dish anytime of the year, the layer of flavors matches well with our Sangiovese, Merlot or Petite Sirah. Please note: you may substitute Italian sweet sausage for the turkey sausage and Lidia used chicken pieces with skin and on the bone—this is a healthier version as well as a short cut because the chicken doesn’t take as long to cook. I am sure it will taste just as good either way you make it.
Wine Pairing: Sangiovese
