“Here's another recipe from Ciao Italia that I make often. My veggies vary depending on the season and what's at hand.”

  2. Toast the pine nuts in a small nonstick saute pan over medium heat until they are lightly browned nd frgrant. Transfer to dish.
  3. Combine the salt, pepper, dried oregano, celery salt and pepper flakes in a small bowl. Mix well, then rub evenly over the chicken pieces.
  4. Heat the oil in a large heavy saute pan over medium high heat. Brown the chicken pieces skin side down a few at a time. Do not overcrowd the pan or chicken will steam instead of brown. Add lemon juice and 1/3 cup water, cover the pan and simmer 30 minutes, turning the pieces every 10 minutes.
