Chicken Vesuvius

This recipe is excellent for large groups but also can be scaled down to easily make this a dinner for two.
Chicken Vesuvius has been in my family for years, handed down from my Great Grandmother, Grandmother, Mother and then into my hands and along the way there has not been one change made to it simply because, why mess around with ABSOLUTE PERFECTION. ☺

I can still smell all these flavors mixing together in the oven on Christmas Eve. Even as I am writing, I can smell the unbelievable aroma this dish leaves on all your senses, mind and heart. It is a flavor you will never forget.
The tastes of Italy are throughout this recipe and I am certain it will become a favorite in your home as well.

Translucent onions are a nice addition to any dish that require further roasting or when you want to have an onion for a condiment that is not raw yet still has some crisp to the bite.
Cooking translucent onions is very simple and you will achieve perfection in no time. I use them in my Chicken Vesuvius plus many other recipes we will cover in future posts.

Nothing beats the smell and the taste of this perfect little addition to the right meal. Slightly crisp center with just the right amount of darkening of the outside skin. Dripping with flavor to enhance any meal. They can be added to a roaster at one point or to your favorite Italian sausage. It is just that little extra a meal needs to be complete.
