Carrabba's Italian Grill was founded by Johnny Carrabba and Damian Mandola in Houston, Texas in 1986. The restaurant features hand-prepared family recipes made from the finest ingredients and prepared to order in an exhibition kitchen. The success of Carrabba's led to the popular PBS cooking show Cucina!, starring Carrabba and Mandola, as well as a series of companion cookbooks. There are currently 240 Carrabba's Italian Grill locations around the country.

Offering Italian-inspired cuisine passed down from our founders’ family recipes, Carrabba’s uses only the best ingredients to prepare fresh and handmade dishes cooked to order in a lively exhibition kitchen. Featuring a wood-burning grill inspired by the many tastes of Italy, customers can enjoy signature dishes, including Chicken Bryan, Spiedino di Mare and a fresh twist on an Italian Classic, Wood-grilled Chicken Marsala. Carrabba’s was voted #1 Italian in the 2014 Consumer Picks Survey by Nation’s Restaurant News.

Carrabba's Restaurant Recipe

Serves 4-6

1 whole chicken, cut into 8 pieces
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 bay leaves
5 oranges
1 lemon

To Prepare: Season the chicken with salt, pepper, and rosemary. Zest 2 oranges and the lemon. Juice the oranges and the seeds. Set zest and juice aside until needed.

In a large skillet over medium heat, add the chicken, skin-side down, making sure not to overcrowd.
When the skin-side is browned, about 5 to 6 minutes, turn and cook the other side, for 3 to 4 minutes. Add the garlic and bay leaves, and cook for 1 minute. Add the orange and lemon zest and juice. Cover and continue to cook another 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

To Serve:  Discard the bay leaves and use a slotted spoon to transfer the chick to a warm platter. Pour the sauce over the chicken and serve.
