I visited a restaurant in NYC recently and ordered penne pasta with smoked chicken in vodka sauce. when it came to the table i was overwhelmed by the smoky smell of the chicken in the vodka sauce. i admit i did not pay attention to the 'smoked' description of the dish but was looking forward to tasting a nice vodka sauce. i absolutely hate strongly flavored barbeque and that's all i could smell when the dish came to the table. Usually when i try something new, even if i'm not sure I like it the first time, i develop a taste for it. i don't cook professionally but i would think that combining smoked chicken with vodka sauce is a bad idea. what are your thoughts?
