Chicken Scarpariello is one of my favorite rustic Italian dishes. Its one of those dishes that set off every taste bud in your mouth. The heat from the cherry peppers, the sweetness from the peppers and honey, the delish garlic, and the balsamic vinegar - each one compliments the other.
I came up with this version on a snowy day stuck inside the house!

Fun Food Fact: The name Scarpariello is also known as Chicken Shoemaker - it comes about from the fact that even the family of a poor shoemaker in southern Italy could afford to make this dish! This is due to early 20th century times when the Italian men, leaving their homes in Italy, would come to the America's to seek work. One man would be designated to do the shopping and cooking for the camps. Shoemaker style would be the lowest compliment you could pay a French chef - basically saying "sloppy or incompetent". BUT these immigrants achieved great taste with almost no resources and "shoemaker style" is a compliment of flavor.
