Chicken Puttanesca: A Saucy Step Up From The Ordinary!

Let me tell you, folks, fancifying my dinner plate with some saucy chicken puttanesca truly hits the spot. Imagine this: tender cuts of chicken, drowned in a saucy concoction that’s both tangy and spicy, chock-full of bold Mediterranean flavors. Just thinking about it has my mouth watering like a leaking faucet!

The whole shebang starts with browning some chicken. Heaven knows we all need a bit of crunchy delight amidst the succulence. Then I toss in heaps of garlic and capers, allowing them to do their magic. And boy, do they add a kick!

But that’s only the tip of the iceberg. The real stars of this show are the anchovies and olives. While these babies might not usually be everyone’s cup of tea, believe you me, once sizzled up, their flavors meld into a beautiful ballet, adding a mouthwatering umami touch and delicate briney punch that’ll knock your socks off.

And then enters the tomatoes, transforming the whole mishmash into a tantalizing sauce. I allow it simmer, taking my sweet time to ensure the flavors get to know each other a bit, like friends sharing a pot of tea. After all, good things come to those who wait, right?

Oh, and let’s not forget a sprinkle of parsley at the end for a fresh kick. Whipping up this chicken puttanesca can seem like somewhat of a tightrope walk if you’re not used to juggling these bold ingredients. But trust me, once you’ve got a taste of this saucy goodness, there’s simply no turning back!

So folks, instead of running around like a headless chicken at dinnertime, why not give this saucy chicken puttanesca a whirl? Your taste buds, and anyone lucky enough to share the feast with you, will surely thank you!

Cluck, Pluck, Luck: Your Chicken Masterpiece Awaits!

– Start by slicing approximately 500 grams of boneless, skinless chicken thighs into generous chunks.
– Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a large pan, then toss in the chicken. Cook until browned and remove from the pan.
– In the same pan, add another splash of oil if needed, then throw in three crushed garlic cloves and two tablespoons of capers. Saute until fragrant.
– Now, add three chopped anchovies and a half cup of chopped black or Kalamata olives and continue to cook, stirring frequently.
– Add one can (400 grams) of chopped tomatoes, along with a teaspoon of red chili flakes for an added kick. Stir it all up until properly combined.
– Bring the sauce to a simmer, then return the browned chicken to the pan, nestling it into the sauce.
– Allow this to cook on medium low heat, your goal is to ensure the chicken is cooked through and the flavors meld together. This typically takes about 20 minutes.
– Just before serving, add a hearty handful of freshly chopped parsley for an added freshness.
– This feisty dish can be served over pasta or paired with a slice of crusty bread to mop up the delicious sauce. Enjoy!
