So here's some advice. If you plan on making Osso Buco, you don't need to make it with Veal Shanks which cost $15 a pound. Use boned chicken breasts instead. And definitely make the gremolada because it adds incredible flavor to the meal.

I'm curious why you chose chicken instead of beef or lamb shanks. I'm sure that lamb shanks would add their own flavor (having just had a heavily lamby lamb shank based dish), but I would think that beef would work out well.

I didn't use chicken. I used veal shanks which are darned expensive and hard to find. I will try with beef or lamb one day too.

Aaaah, I get it. Never cooked with veal.

We had osso buco last night. It was specially prepared for a party of 12 by my friend who owns a local italian restaurant.

Italian comfort food!

He ordered the veal from Sysco, his food supplier, as it is not available anywhere.

Nice thing about having a friend in the business is that he can get hard to find foods for special occasions.

I've had good Osso Buco with pork in the past, so that is another idea to try.

Thanks for sharing that recipe. We made that last night with Lamb Shanks. It was outstanding. The risotto was excellent too, but I think I’ll pass on the parmesan next time. The meal paired excellent with a Napa Pinot.

Mike,

Glad you liked it. My favourite part was the vegetables and gremolada.
