Chicken with Sweet and Hot Peppers

Scarpariello is “shoemaker” in Italian. Here, “shoemaker’s” chicken may refer to Neapolitan shoemakers making delicious food in the little time they had at the end of the day, but I am pretty sure it is not a traditional dish in Italia. It is probably more a “Little Italy” dish, born of southern Italian roots somewhere…
