If you’re unfamiliar, chicken riggies is a Utica pasta dish that balances sweet spicy, and savory with its medley of rigatoni, chicken, peppers, and fiery tomato sauce. That distinct taste is perfectly captured by the riggies dished out here. Plus, you’ll also find a myriad of Upstate New York goodies like Utica greens and tomato pie. No matter which dish you sample, however, you won’t regret indulging in these carb-laden wonders. So, go find It’s A Utica Thing out on the street or have ‘em out to cater your next event.
