You can choose from three different chicken dishes at Grico’s South, each with amazing flavors you’re sure to enjoy. If you’re not in the mood for chicken, you can also order these three dishes with veal.
If you love garlic, chicken scampi is the perfect item on our menu for you. Scampi is a classic dish prepared with garlic, butter, and white wine. While you can commonly find this dish featuring chicken, it was originally made with shrimp and created in America. A scampi is actually a type of lobster often sauteed in butter or olive oil, garlic, and white wine. However, scampi wasn’t widely available in America, so people used similar methods to cook shrimp instead. Today, scampi can include various meat and seafood with a garlic, butter, and white wine sauce. This rich, buttery sauce is a favorite of many and will be perfect for your next night out.
A rich sauce with an earthy umami flavor is the ultimate comfort meal. Chicken Marsala is made with Marsala wine and mushrooms and is another popular Italian American dish that many love. Made in Sicily, Marsala wine is a fortified wine that can be sweet or dry, although dry Marsala is used for cooking and is featured in many different Italian and Italian American dishes. Marsala is a common cooking wine, but has also traditionally been served as an aperitif and a dessert wine. This savory sauce pairs perfectly with chicken and is the ideal dish for anyone who wants a meal with a strong flavor.
Lemon is the perfect flavor to brighten up any dish and make a rich sauce feel lighter. Dipped in egg and sautéed in lemon beurre blanc, chicken Francaise is one of the most popular lemony dishes out there. While Francaise is Italian for French, chicken Francaise isn’t French or Italian, it’s Italian-American. Many people believe the dish originated in New York by Italian immigrants. This dish originally used veal, not chicken. However, this is believed to have changed to chicken in Rochester, New York, creating the meal we know and love today.
