Chicken Riggies-A Shout Out to Utica!

Chicken Riggies are a native dish to the Utica, NY area, as far as I know. It’s a chicken and Rigatoni pasta dish that has a little kick to it’s sauce. picture565

This beautiful velvety sauce simmers for an hour until it reduces and thickens enough to hug the pasta.


The pasta is coated with melted butter and parmesan cheese (I used Pennette because it’s small-mouth friendly).


The last step is when the pasta is married with the sauce. Mmmmmm, mmmmmm, good! Thank you, Utica!

      Jean, It’s a recipe I got from a family member, so it’s not really mine to post. But since you are family, too…. I’ll email you!
