    Luby Luby Luby's Note:

    This is one of Emeril Lagasse's recipes with a couple of my own variations. It has become one of DH's favorite meals. You may want to reduce the amount of butter or only add half the butter at first and then you can add the remaining if need be. Don't let the long list of ingredients fool you. It is very easy to make and not very time consuming as you can cook your spaghetti while the chicken is baking in the oven. You can even substitute breasts if you prefer white meat but the thighs come out so tender and juicy.

      This is a very strange recipe in you seem to discard the best part, the pan juice from the chicken. I used about 1/2 the olive oil it called for to brown the chicken and cooked most of the fat out. I drained all but a couple of tablespoons of fat before I added the other ingredients. I cooked the thighs 45 minutes and they were done but I did uncover and cook for about 10 minutes. I removed thighs and kept warm in the oven and took out the lemon. I sauted the onion in a little olive oil then sprinkled in some flour and stirred to coat, added about three times as much wine and reduced slightly then added the contents of the roasting pan, cooked until sauce (added a little chicken stock to thin). I melted less than half the butter in the roasting pan and stirred in the spaghetti and heated through, added the sauce stirred to coat over low heat, added the parmesan and mixed lightly served with the thighs. It was wonderful with a good chianti. I would highly recommend this over the original recipe.
