DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Romano’s Macaroni Grill, a national restaurant chain that creates authentic, inventive Italian dishes, is declaring its birthday, April 19, as National Chicken Parmesan Day and will offer a buy-one-get-one free Chicken Parmesan entrée to their guests April 19 through April 23, 2017, at all of its 125 locations in the United States.
Chicken Parmesan has been one of Macaroni Grill’s most beloved entrees since founder Phil Romano wrote the restaurant’s original recipe book for the first location on April 19, 1988. Inspired by the Southern Italian regions of Campania and Sicily, Romano’s signature recipe features hand-pounded, fresh chicken breast coated with a Milanese-style breadcrumb parmesan mixture which is then topped with Pomodorina sauce made from Emilia Romagna tomatoes in Northern Italy and Buffalo Mozzarella from the Lupara family farm in Vitulazio, Italy. The entrée is then served with a side of bronze-cut capellini imported from the Pastificio Guido Ferrara family just outside Naples, Italy. Using bronze cut dies creates imperfections in the pasta’s surface allowing it to hold more cheese, meat, and sauce than a perfect cut would.
Macaroni Grill’s culinary team prepares each guest’s dish cooked to order in an open kitchen so guests can see the ingredients and culinary techniques in action.
“What better way to celebrate our birthday than with one of our most favorite dishes?” said Holly Wagstaff, Vice President of Marketing for Macaroni Grill. “It’s a classic dish that’s been a guest favorite since day one, so we’re happy to offer a free Chicken Parmesan entrée that allows everyone to taste the extraordinary flavors of Italy.”
Macaroni Grill’s National Chicken Parmesan Day BOGO promotion will be available at all United States restaurants, excluding airport, Puerto Rico and Hawaii locations, for lunch or dinner, dine-in or take-out, from Wednesday, April 19 through Sunday, April 23, 2017.
