Chicken riggies is a local dish. It basically consists of rigitoni pasta with chunks of chicken along with peppers and onions in a cream-based sauce with a bit of tomato sauce thrown in for color.
Wildly popular here and virtually unknown anywhere else. Another local dish we'll be covering in an upcoming episode is greens.
While the economy sucks here (yes, worse than most of the rest of the US!) we sure have some great food!
Karimala, save some of that catfish for me! Here in Central New York (Utica, Rome, Oneida, in case anyone cares) Friday fish frys are a staple. However, they're usually haddock.
