  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • black pepper, to taste
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 (28 oz) jar marinara sauce
  • 1 (16 oz) package spaghetti
  • Parmesan cheese
  • fresh basil, torn for garnish


Step 1

Heat olive oil and butter in a large high-sided skillet. Season the chicken thighs on both sides with salt and pepper. Add to the pan and cook until brown, about 4 minutes per side. Remove to a plate.

Step 2

Toss in the onion, bell pepper, and garlic, and sauté until tender, about 5 minutes. Season with salt, pepper and crushed pepper flakes. Stir in the marinara sauce and add the chicken back into the pan. Simmer for 20 minutes.

Step 3

While chicken simmers, cook spaghetti according to package directions. Ladle chicken and sauce over pasta and finish with Parmesan and fresh basil to serve.

My mom use to ma

My mom use to make it when I was a kid but she would use the left over friend chicken we had as dinner that night. Waste not want not as she would say. I love this recipe because of the boneless skinless thighs you can now get that cook up so quickly. Although chicken on the bone gives off more flavor, but that is not a problem with this recipe. The flavors all put together of this recipe is sooooooo good. Thanks Paula.
