I noticed that savvy marketers use the word Tuscan to sell just about anything these days! I am going to shamelessly do the same just this once. I call it Cheating Chicken because I start with a store bought whole roasted chicken which eliminates a lot of work and prep time. This recipe is simple and delicious. With a loaf of crusty bread, you'll be mopping up every last drop of the garlicky lemon sauce!


1 large plain whole roasted chicken, cut into pieces. Each breast half cut into 2 or 3 pieces saving the pan drippings

8 cloves fresh chopped garlic

1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

2 lemons

1/2 cup white wine

3/4 cup chicken broth plus the pan drippings

3 Tbs softened butter mixed with 1 Tbs flour mixed well

1 tsp fresh chopped rosemary

1/2 tsp fresh cracked pepper

1/2 tsp kosher salt

1 Tbs. Capers (optional)


Heat the olive oil on medium heat in your largest skillet. Add the garlic and cook just until fragrant. Quickly add all the chicken pieces and cook about 1 minute on each side careful not to burn the garlic. Add the white wine and cook for about 2 minutes. Meanwhile take the first lemon and squeeze the juice over the chicken. Take the second lemon and zest it over the chicken. After doing so, slice it into about six slices and arrange them around the chicken pieces. Add the salt, pepper, rosemary and capers. Add the butter flour mixture in dollops all around the chicken. Give the chicken pieces another turn so that the flavors are hitting both sides. Reduce heat to simmer. Shake and swirl the pan around to get everything swimming together. Cook about 5-10 minutes longer. Remove the chicken pieces to a platter and pour the sauce and lemon slices over the top. Note: If you like even more sauce just increase the oil, lemon juice, and broth accordingly.
