Grill Like an Italian with Colavita: Easy Grilled Chicken Piccata

Grilled Chicken Piccata is just another one of my easy family dinner ideas that answers the question of what to make. I know you all face that question as often as I do.

With an abundance of wonderful Colavita ingredients to choose from – it was fun to come up with a great dish for dinner. I started with a few of their items paired with my grilled chicken.

Colavita was founded in the village of Sant’Elia a Pianisi, located in the Molise region of Italy, by the joining of two families. One family produced fine extra virgin olive oil from the local olives and the other milled durum wheat into semolina grain and to make fresh pasta for the village. As prominent producers in their area and with the same name, Colavita, the two became one company and today create a variety of gourmet ingredients for Italian cooking. A match made in heaven if you ask me!

A little grilled chicken with some pasta with a light sauce is my idea of a perfect summer dish. I love creating recipes to wow my guests. When they are asking for the details on how I whipped dinner together so easily I know I have a keeper.
