Utica Chicken Riggies Recipe, Gluten Free

Fred Alam


I got this from WIBX radio station in Utica, NY. This is the "Utica" original. There are other recipes out there but this is the one from Utica. The only thing I changed was the pasta. I used 100% corn pasta to make it gluten free. With the corn pasta you can't tell the difference.
