Organic Chicken Puttanesca with Pappardelle


I can’t get Enough of this Sauce!!

Puttanesca 1

This has been quite the weekend here in  my household! My catering business is growing leaps and bounds which has required a ton of revamping within my house and building out space to accommodate my needs. Can anyone say I need a vacation! Every weekend right now seems to be taken up by renos and work.

I love summer and hate for it to fly by but I have a feeling this one is going to go by in a blur!

I’ve been making this sauce for so long and with so many different applications that I’m not sure which way I prefer it best!

It’s definitely quite often my go-to recipe to put on cod or pickerel. The salty and sweet of it make the perfect combo for fish. This time though I decided you all might like with crispy skinned chicken and pasta!! It’s really so quick and simple to make but the punch of flavours will make it seem like you’ve slaved over the sauce for hours.

Even as a summer recipe it would be great over barbequed chicken and served with gem potatoes and asparagus. Once you try it, I guarantee you’ll be thinking up ways to using again soon!
