Pollo Vesuvio

Translated to Vesuvius chicken in English, this dish was named after the volcano, Mount Vesuvius, which is near Naples. I was incredibly lucky to get to see this volcano when I went to Italy with my family in 2018.

This recipe is from my boyfriend’s recipe book. He is no fan of chicken but makes it for me. It is a flavorful and hearty dish. Made with love every time. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

Pearl onions

Frozen peas

Chicken thighs, skin on and bone-in

White wine

Yukon gold or russet potatoes (for russet, cut smaller as shown in the picture)

Salt and pepper

Thyme, chopped

Olive oil

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400F

Brown chicken in olive oil until skin is crisp, remove and set aside.

In same pan, add enough white wine to deglaze the pan then add potatoes and onions, cook until warm.

In oven safe pan add chicken and potato mix together, place in oven and cook for 35 minutes.

Remove and add peas and cook another 10 minutes.
