Chicken/Veal Sorrentino

eldogg | Sep 2, 201911:05 AM     1

Hello All. Last night, I went out with some friends to a neighborhood in the Bronx in NY known as Belmont (Arthur Ave). It is a well-known Italian cultural area that has been there for years with many restaurants, delis, bakeries.

So we settled on one of the restaurants. I ordered Chicken Sorrentino which according to the menu was prepared with white wine sauce. When I questioned the waiter, he specifically said Marsala wine sauce. Seeing "white wine sauce" concerned me because every time I've ever had Chicken or Veal Sorrentino, it was served in a light or dark brown sauce that had a pretty distinct taste to it ... sometimes with mushrooms.

Well, the Chicken Sorrentino arrived ... plain chicken cutlets topped with cheese, Spinach, Prosciutto (but no eggplant) ... but clearly with a colorless sauce that to me was almost tasteless. My other friend who had the same dish looked at me like I was crazy when I said that I thought it was "just ok" and he said it was delicious.

So how should one expect Sorrentino to be prepared, what type of sauce should it be prepared with, and what type of taste should the sauce have?
