“Vesuvio” Erupts Again!

yup that is right…”Vesuvio” as in “Chicken Vesuvio!”

Most likely this dish originated from the “Mount Vesuvius” region of Italy. That is the one that covered Pompeii and Herculaneum.

It was so delicious the first time around that I saved the leftover “au jus” and froze it. (Is that weird? Or maybe just excessively frugal?)

So I threw that in a slow-cooker with a couple of chicken breasts and about an hour before serving time; sliced up some potatoes into thick wedges and roasted them. Some folks call these “steak fries.”   Around these parts we call them “jojos.”

I threw in some frozen peas just to complete the look and voila…instant, easy dinner!
