Italian Chicken Sheet Pan- Feast of Sts Aquila & Priscilla- July 8
Updated: Feb 3, 2022
Happy Feast of Sts. Aquila and Priscilla!
It’s our family name day so we celebrate Aquilamas with either Italian food or treats. Aquila and Priscilla were from Rome and then were exiled to Corinth but our family’s Italian American culture is also something that we like share in. This saintly couple is mentioned several times in the New Testament as being dear friends and helpers of St. Paul. They were all tent makers and were probably converted by him during his ministry. What I find most inspiring about this couple is that they offered their home to others with love and generosity, especially for Mass when house churches were incredibly common. I hope to be like this as well!
Our bigger celebration had to be moved to the weekend but this is one of our favorite go-to dinners. Perfect Italian dinner for celebrating any Italian saint!

Squish it around in the bag to cover the chicken with the salt more thoroughly.
Set the chicken aside and in a medium bowl pour in 1/4 cup olive oil.
Then pour in 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar.

Add in 2 tsp Italian seasoning.
Now for the 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder, is it just me or does this stuff smell really good?
