This Chicken Scarpariello Recipe was given to me by an Italian college friend's mom.

"Bring Italian flavours into your kitchen with Chicken Scarpariello. "

This is an easy chicken dish to cook and something different that I have found to be quite useful to make for dinner parties because its quick to prepare and the flavour of the bacon makes it special. It can also be made with Italian sausage. Boneless chicken breast is the best meat to use.

Serves: 2
Preparation / Cooking Time: 30-35 minutes

How to cook Italian : Chicken Scarpariello
