♥ How to make the best Calabrese sauce?
Flavour comes from herbs, spices and veggies. In this recipe the fresh vegetables are first roasted. The flavour intensifies when the garlic, shallots, bell peppers and tomatoes are roasted. Once they veggies are lightly caramelized they are blended until almost smooth. With added fresh basil and cream, the sauce becomes even more flavourful and creamy. The sauce is then used to deglaze the pan that has the chicken juices. Lastly, I added the mozzarella cheese, making the sauce thick and cheesy. I can’t tell you enough how delicious this Calabrese sauce is. It turns a simple chicken dinner into an Italian delicacy!
Once the sauce is made, the chicken is layered with ham slices, fresh tomatoes and smothered with the Calabrese red pepper cream sauce. The vibrant sauce is made with roasted veggies, garlic, rosemary, plenty of fresh basil and of course cheese. The sauce is packed with tremendous flavour, making this Italian chicken Calabrese dish exceptional.
