Skillet Chicken Vesuvio
Traditional Vesuvio features braised bone-in chicken parts, but boneless breasts make more sense for our streamlined, quick-cooking skillet recipe.
Why This Recipe Works
Streamlining Skillet Chicken Vesuvio meant starting with boneless, skinless chicken breasts. To get the most flavor from lean boneless breasts, we browned the breasts well and added some oil to help the process along, before removing them from the skillet. Waxy red baby potatoes were the best choice here, as they held their shape and texture through cooking. These small potatoes worked better halved and browned on the cut side.
