Q Let me start by saying how much I enjoy and look forward to your column every week. You have helped me in the past and I hope you will. Cannoli Kitchen on Powerline Road makes a great escarole and beans with chicken. I tried to replicate the dish and although pretty good, it lacks that special something that they add. In the hope that you allow them to share the recipe with you. Thank you. – Jan Levy, Delray Beach A. Thanks, Jan. You are in good company, according to owner Angela Gismondi. The grilled chicken with escarole and beans has always been a top seller at Cannoli Kitchen (22191 Powerline Road, 561-955-8880, cannolikitchen.com). Gismondi explains why: "The recipes at Cannoli Kitchen are from my grandmother Angela" Gina "Gismondi.Therefore, we have become known as & # 39; the cradle of the lost recipes of Grandma & # 39 ;. I grew up eating So this dish is a comfort meal for me, apart from satisfying, it is also light and healthy, I think that's why so many people love it, especially after the holidays when everyone looks at what they eat. "The grilled chicken is also available with sautéed spinach, broccoli or broccoli rabe. Since 1996, Cannoli Kitchen has been synonymous with fast food, Italian style. The nonchalant concept violates all preconceived stereotypes by using fresh, high-quality ingredients to prepare dishes that are served efficiently by friendly staff. The cozy bistro "Boca Raton-West" offers takeout, delivery and catering. There is no table service, but a limited number of seats and a terrace outside table and chairs are available. Although Cannoli Kitchen's "Boca Raton-East" location (2001 N Federal Highway, Boca Raton, 561-338-2929) shares the same name and website, it has a different owner and the menu's differ slightly . Cannoli Kitchen uses grilled chicken breast for this recipe, but home cooks can replace sautéed chicken breast with the same delicious results. Maybe it's "special something" missing in your recipe, Jan, more about technology than ingredients, because there are so few – just one of the things I like about this dish. Gismondi says to ensure that the beans are cooked long enough so that they are steeped in the caramelized garlic flavor. I hope this helps.
