Chicken Scarpariello

We never seem to find this in Italian restaurants any more so I started cooking it. This really is a party in your mouth! It's a little involved but so worth it. Sometimes I serve it with spaghetti to soak up the sauce and sometimes we use crusty Italian bread. It''s good either way.
