Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For the Chicken: Heat 2 teaspoons of oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Season cutlets with salt and pepper; add to hot pan and cook 2 minutes, until browned. Flip; cook just until no longer pink. Transfer cutlets to a baking sheet; cover with foil and place in oven to keep warm.
  2. For the Puttanesca Sauce: Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat, then saute the onion and garlic for 5 minutes or until translucent.
  3. Add anchovies and cook for another minute, breaking up the filets with a wooden spoon.
  4. Add the chili flakes, capers, olives, tomatoes with juices, fresh basil, salt, pepper and sugar; bring to a boil.
  5. Reduce heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes. Divide pasta into four bowls and top each with puttanesca sauce, chicken cutlets and grated Parmesan.
