I think this is 'CC'. I was served it many years ago at someone's house than I asked for the recipe and just made it once. It was EXCELLENT!
Now I want to make it again. I assume it's some sort of riff on 'CC'. If not please let me know.
Here's the recipe:
Chicken thighs pounding fairy flat then the usual dredging in flour etc and browned then set aside.
A sauce with canned diced tomatoes, tomato paste,oregano and any other Italian herbs you want. Bottle of good red wine added. Sauce reduced. Seasoned.
This is where things change a bit.
In a large stoneware circular oven casserole dish put a ladle of sauce in>on top a couple of pieces of the browned chicken to just cover the sauce>a layer of parma cheese slices>another layer of the sauce>then more chicken, then cheese slices, then sauce, chicken etc etc until the casserole is filled not quite to the top. Lid on. Into preheated 325 F oven for an hour or so. Check internal temp to make sure it's really nice and hot so the cheese has melted.
To serve carefully ladle out onto hot plates. I think a small salad was served and some fresh Italian bread. Not sure about that.
The casserole was very memorable.
Does this recipe sound familiar to anyone?
