    Geema's Note:

    This is a wonderful, flavorful way to make chicken and have a great sauce for some pasta on the side. Tomatoes, onions, and lots of garlic create the base of the sauce, then it's sparked with flavor from olives, red pepper flakes, anchovies and capers. After eating this chicken you will immediately begin talking with your hands and singing opera.

    1. 1
      Heat the skillet over medium high heat, and then add the oil.
    2. 2
      Brown the chicken pieces on both sides, and remove from the pan, setting aside.
    3. 3
      Add the onion and garlic to the sam pan and saute until the onion is soft, 5 minutes or so.
    4. 4
      Stir in the plum tomatoes with their liquid and then the remaining ingredients.
    5. 5
      Return the chicken to the pan and coat well with the sauce.
    6. 6
      Cover the pan and simmer on low until the chicken is tender, about 30 minutes, depending on the chicken parts.
    7. 7
      The breasts will cook much quicker than the thighs, so check for doneness.

      Bursting with flavor. It was great with orchiette, but any pasta that isn't too "skinny" and delicate would work well, I think. This is definitely good enough to serve to company.

      This was great - added some red capsicum and carrots to the sauce and enjoyed it with rice instead of pasta. Very tasty!

      This was a really good chicken dish. We followed your directions to a "t" (adding a little extra red pepper flakes) and served it with penne pasta. I added heaping amounts of grated romano cheese over the final product, which was really good. Thanks for a nice meal, Geema!
