Chicken A La Grande from Mosca’s Restaurant
Updated: Jan 4
I was looking for a different way to cook chicken and thought of this dish. It is simple to make and very flavorable. While Mosca’s is well known for their Oyster’s Mosca, this is one of their most popular dish. The recipe is for one serving of the dish at the restaurant, which is enough for 2 or 3. I used boneless skinless thighs for my dish.
3 pounds Chicken cut into 8 pieces
3/4 cup Olive Oil
1 tablespoon Salt
1 tablespoon Freshly ground Black Pepper
6-10 cloves unpeeled Garlic, pounded
1 tablespoon dried Rosemary
1 tablespoon dried Oregano
1/2 cup dry White Wine
Place chicken pieces in a large skillet pan. Pour the Olive oil all over the chicken, making certain the pieces are well coated. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, making sure the seasonings are evenly spread. Turn the burner on medium high. Brown the chicken on all sides, turning as needed. This should take about 25 minutes. Add the garlic, rosemary and oregano, making certain to distribute them evenly on the chicken. Remove the skillet from the stove. Pour the white wine over the chicken. Reduce heat to medium low. Simmer uncovered until the wine is reduced by half, 10-15 minutes.
