To make her Sunday-supper scarpariello -- chicken sauteed in a tangy lemon glaze with bell pepper -- Fran Parisi always uses a whole chicken cut into pieces, then cooks it on the stove for hours. Grace Parisi opts for faster-cooking boneless thighs and skips the bell pepper in favor of jarred Peppadews, sweet-spicy pickled peppers from South Africa, sold in many US supermarkets.


Chicken Scarpariello
Quentin Bacon
Recipe from 
Servings: 4
Prep Time: 40 mins
Total Time: 40 mins
       small skinless, boneless chicken thighs (2 pounds)
        Salt and freshly ground pepper
        All-purpose flour, for dusting
    1/2  cup  extra-virgin olive oil
       garlic cloves, halved lengthwise and lightly smashed
       large rosemary sprigs, broken into 2-inch pieces
     cups  chicken stock or low-sodium broth
     tablespoons  fresh lemon juice
     tablespoons  unsalted butter
    1/2  cup  Peppadew peppers or other pickled peppers, sliced
Season the chicken with salt and pepper and dust with flour. In a large skillet, heat the oil until shimmering. Add the chicken and cook over high heat, turning once, until browned and crusty on both sides, about 10 minutes. Add the garlic and rosemary and cook for 3 minutes, until the garlic is lightly browned. Transfer the chicken to a platter, leaving the rosemary and garlic in the skillet.
Add the stock to the skillet and cook over high heat, scraping up any browned bits, until reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Add the lemon juice and butter and swirl until emulsified. Return the chicken and any accumulated juices to the skillet. Add the peppers and cook, turning the chicken until coated in the sauce, about 3 minutes. Transfer the chicken and sauce to the platter and serve.
