When Mr. Food was growing up in Troy, New York, all the neighborhood kids would make a beeline to his kitchen door when they knew his mom was making this for his family.

What You'll Need:
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 pounds chicken breasts, skinned, boned, and cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 jar (25 to 29 ounces) spaghetti sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 package (16 ounces) thin spaghetti, uncooked
  • Grated Parmesan cheese for sprinkling
What To Do:
  1. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken, onion, and garlic; cook until the chicken and onion are tender, 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  2. Stir in the spaghetti sauce, parsley, basil, oregano, and crushed red pepper. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, stirring frequently, for about 10 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked and no pink remains.

  3. Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the pasta to desired doneness; drain.

  4. Serve the sauce over the hot pasta. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Notes

When I was growing up, we used whichever chicken parts we happened to have. And back then we didn't use cheese on top, but it sure does make it sensational?
