Skillet Chicken with Silky Peppers and Green Olives is a terrific weeknight meal as it only takes approximately 45 minutes to prepare. Besides, we could all use yet another chicken recipe, can’t we? For this dish you’ll need bone-in, skin on chicken thighs (I used breasts), fresh or dried oregano (I had fresh from my cold frame), kosher salt, fresh ground pepper, 2 peppers (red, orange or yellow or combination of colors), garlic, a fresh tomato, extra-virgin olive oil, red pepper flakes, green olives such as Castelvetrano (found at Wegmans), fresh herbs (parsley, basil or cilantro or a combination, I used parsley) and lemon wedges for serving (I omitted).
Do you ever crave a pasta dish with a rich, creamy sauce? Recently in the “Here to Help” column in the first section of The New York Times was a published recipe by Colu Henry for Pasta alla Vodka. This recipe takes a quick 30 minutes to prepare.
For the recipe you’ll need, kosher salt, rigatoni (or penne), olive oil, pancetta (optional, but I suggest you don’t skip), an onion, fresh garlic, red-pepper flakes, vodka, 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes, black pepper, heavy cream, Parmesan cheese, fresh oregano and fresh parsley.
