A simple Chicken Vesuvio recipe that's full of flavor and serves up beautifully. I keep a small mason jar of the seasoned flour in my pantry, adding the Parmesan when I'm ready to make the dish. Chicken Vesuvio reminds me of a classic 1970's meal, so grown up and ready for a cozy dinner for two. This dish is incredibly simple to prep. I can pop it in the oven, set the timer, and let it cook while I'm doing other things around the house.
Ingredients to Make Simple Chicken Vesuvio

My recipe calls for two bone-in chicken breast but when it was time to cook it up I decided to try using one insanely large chicken breast which weighs in a 1.25 pounds! It turned out just fine and was easy to divide into two pieces.
I mostly use canned chicken broth and this recipe calls for just a half cup, instead of tossing the rest of the can you can freeze the remaining broth in cube trays.
