Italian Style Chicken
Chicken plays an important role in the cuisine of the farmers of the Veneto countryside. From the chickens, farmers could get eggs and when the time came, every single part of the chicken was used, including the legs and the head. But don’t fret, we are only using the legs, the breast and the wings in this Italian Style Chicken recipe.
