Pollo alla ‘ncip ‘nciap

Pollo alla ‘ncip ‘nciap is a traditional Italian chicken dish originating from the city of Offida in Marche. The dish is made with a combination of chicken, garlic, tomatoes, rosemary, sage, olive oil, and dry white wine. The chicken is cut into pieces, hence the onomatopoeic phrase ‘ncip ‘nciap in the name, which is reminiscent of the sound that a knife makes when the chicken is cut.
