    Default My Chicken Puttanesca

    Crowd pleaser, my version. Serves 4-6 depending if you put it over penne pasta. Tastes great the second day.

    4 Thick chicken filets - cut up into large cubes

    1/3 cup Capers

    1/2 cup Kalamata olives (fresh, pitted, coarsely chopped)

    8 garlic cloves - coarsely chopped

    Anchovy Paste in tube OR 6 smashed and finely chopped Anchovies. (I use the paste)

    Olive Oil

    Large can chopped tomatos in juice

    Small can Tomato paste

    About 10 pieces of flat italian parsley - finely chopped.
    --------------------------------------------------------
    Chicken

    In large skillet, heat olive oil, add chicken, cover. Keep turning chicken with spoon, LOW HEAT. Do not let chicken burn. There will be a lot of liquid for the chicken to cook in.

    Sauce

    In another large skillet or medium sauce pan: Coat bottom with olive oil, sautee garlic.

    Add both cans of tomato sauce, add olives, add anchovy. Cook 15 minutes. Stir

    Add capers, add salt and pepper (just a dash). Cook 5 minutes. Stir

    Add some of the parsley (reserve some for the end). Cook another 10 minutes. Stir
    -------------------------------------------------------------

    DRAIN liquid in chicken skillet.

    Return to stove, add sauce to chicken. Mix sauce and chicken to cover all pieces. Cover and cook for 15 minutes on low heat. Should be gently bubbling.

    Stir in rest of parsley.

    Serve in shallow bowl, either alone of over pasta.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    String beans are just fresh string beans in a steamer. Add juice of a fresh lemon to the water and add the lemon rind to the string beans. Steam until you like the texture.

    Most recipes call for "crushed chili pepper flakes" but if one gets caught on my tongue I can't take it. Add away.

    Thanks. Funny, I had string beans for supper tonight but I just call them green beans. And I do the lemon thing, too. I will definitely add the hot spices to my version of your recipe.

    I love the heat. Apparently it helps metabolize the food quicker, too.
