Chicken Riggies (recipe by P.A. Johnson) is a Utica, NY classic. It is well known throughout the greater Mohawk Valley and once a year there is a festival in honor of this dish called Riggiefest, held to benefit the YWCA of the Mohawk Valley. Here is a recipe based from a Mohawk Valley native:

Ingredients edit

Procedure edit

  1. Sauté onion, peppers, and garlic in the margarine slowly over low/medium heat until the onions are clear.
  2. Add the Parmesan, chicken breast, chicken stock, tomato sauce, cream, and olives. Simmer for about an hour.
  3. Serve over the cooked pasta.

Notes, tips, and variations edit

  • It is important to use jarred peppers—the flavor of fresh peppers completely changes the recipe.
