Chicken riggies or Utica riggies is an Italian-American pasta dish native to the Utica-Rome area of New York State.[1][2] It is a pasta-based dish usually consisting of chicken, rigatoni and hot or sweet peppers in a spicy cream and tomato sauce, although many variations exist.[3][4][5] Many of the chefs from the Utica area seem to have a claim to the dish, yet there seems to be no clear idea who was the originator.[6]
