"This results in a sauce that seems much richer than it actually is, and I think you'll love the subtle sweetness the wine imparts, which works wonderfully with the heat from the peppers." — Chef John

Fantastic Recipe. I slightly changed it b/c I don't like mushrooms or olives, so I added a jalapeno & half a red & green bell pepper. Extremely tasty.
I have never made a bad recipe from Chef John but this one is insanely good! I used more italian sausage and less chicken but only because thats what I had. My husband raved about this dish. I will be making it regularly. If you haven't been to Chef Johns blog Foodwishes go there and watch hm make this recipe, I have been cooking for 30 years and still I find his videos helpful! Thanks again Chef John
Chef John does it again. Awesome dish. Family loved it. I made it as written and used some of my peppers/chilis in my garden.
Really good, and the leftovers were excellent too. Chef John tends to season a little hotter than my family likes, but easy enough to add a little less hot peppers and I also used mild italian sausage. Will make again. I didn't have any olives, but I think they would have made a good addition.
This is very good. It’s not a quick recipe, but worth the wait.
I am from Central NY (Syracuse, specifically) and Chicken Riggies is something my family makes every time I am home, because as Chef John says, you don't see this on a menu anywhere else. This recipe is awesome and I will continue to make it again and again!
Great recipe! I made this for some friends that came over and everyone loved it.
This has been Chef John's recipes at our house this week and I haven't had one fail me yet and this one was outstanding. I usually like sauce to be sitting on my pasta and this sauce was thin but omg, the flavor was unbelievable!! I had to leave out the kalamata olives because I had none, but followed the recipe exactly.
