The Best Chicken Dishes in the Triangle

Monday, June 2nd, 2014

Soak in the warm and sunny weather as you walk around North Hills in Midtown Raleigh. Along with the shopping boutiques, spa salons, and movie theaters, you will find Mia Francesca Trattoria. Our professional and award winning kitchen serves only the best Northern Italian fare found inChickem parm mft 6-2-14 the Triangle. While Italian restaurants are often most famous for pizza and pasta dishes, chicken is a wonderfully important main ingredient in delicious Italian cuisine.

Mia Francesca serves several scrumptious chicken entrees that our guests just love and enjoy. Our chicken comes fresh from Mar-Jac Farms, which has produced fresh “farm to table” chicken since 1954. These chickens have historically been grown to be both tasty and nutritious. This poultry is high in protein and a good source of several B vitamins. You will love the freshness and the high quality.

Our Pollo Arrosto alla Romano dinner features roasted chicken with white wine, garlic, chili flakes, and rosemary herb roasted potatoes. Our Pollo Diavola offering is tender chicken breasts with kalamata, capers, spicy Pomodoro sauce, and sautéed baby spinach. Our Pollo e Pancetta features fresh chicken breast in a pancetta mushroom Marsala sauce with roasted potatoes on the side.

Since chicken and pasta complement one another in delicious ways, be sure to try our Pollo salsa Bianca which combines luscious chicken breast, white wine, Alfredo cream sauce, and Parmigiano served over linguini or try our heavenly Pollo Piccata which blends delicious chicken breast, fresh garlic, white wine, capers, lemon, and linguini aglio e Olio.

Finally, one of our most popular dishes on the menu here in the Triangle is what many people love to call Chicken Parm! The Polo al Parmesan plate almost overflows with a wonderful combination of breaded chicken breast, tomato basil sauce, mozzarella, and parmesan laid over our authentic Linguini aglio e olio. Simply, Chicken Parmesan at its finest!

Now that we have you so hungry for classic Italian chicken entrees, we know a visit is planned; Mia Francesca is conveniently located in the Triangle, off the 440 Raleigh Beltline at Six Forks Road (Exit 8A and 8B), just minutes from everywhere in the Triangle. Come visit us any night of the week and try one of our incredible chicken dishes. Make reservations to dine with us today! The Chicken Parm is waiting!
