So much flavour in a very simple dish made with a very few ingredients.
The secret? A very few ingredients 🙂
We love chicken POLLO /POH-LOH/ but we prefer to eat it on the bone and wings are one of the most flavourful part and fantastic for this delicious recipe.
PEPERONI /PEH-PEH-ROH-NEE/ not to be confused with PEPPERONI the sausage you put on pizza, except when you are in Italy of course, because if you ask for a Pepperoni pizza you’ll get a pizza with peppers on top. Yes! Peppers, beautiful peppers… red, yellow, orange!
So far we only have two ingredients: wings and peppers…..wait! that’s exactly what this dish is called!! The truth is that you don’t need to add anything else a part from 4 tablespoons of olive oil and a good pinch of salt.
To accompany the wings I would recommend a beautiful BRUSCHETTA AL POMODORO …. correctly pronounced /BROO-SKEH-TAH/
A little trick for you to master the best Italian pronunciation is remembering that the letters “C” and “H” together sound the opposite to English, CH = /K/ just like in the word CHIANTI (which I am sure you are familiar with)
So…are you ready? SIETE PRONTI?
A packet of chicken wings (roughly 12 wings, halved as they will cook quicker)
3 peppers, red / yellow / orange (sliced quite chunky)
NOT green peppers
Olive oil, 4 tbs
One large non-stick pan with lid
A punnet of cherry tomatoes 🍅 (diced)
Garlic (finely chopped )
Fresh Basil 🌿 (finely chopped)
Bread ( baguette 🥖or any type of bread available 🍞)
Put a large non-stick pan on a medium heat, pour the olive oil in and add the wings. Add the salt, cover with the lid and cook for 10 minutes. Add the peppers and keep cooking for another 10 minutes, stirring every now and again. Add a little more salt if needed. Cook until the wings are golden and the peppers are soft.
In a bowl mix the tomatoes, garlic, basil, olive oil and salt. Let it marinade for 5 minutes before serving on slices of bread
BUON APPETITO, SONO SICURA CHE VI PIACERÀ 🙂
