Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Mmmm...this was so good! I had some chicken thighs in the freezer that needed cooking and it was one of those days that I didn't want to go to the store so I dug around until I found all the ingredients for this! Winner, winner, chicken dinner! Gonna make it again....fo' sho'!!!

Chicken Thighs in 
Creamy Pasta Sauce

4 chicken thighs
1 large sweet onion - thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves - minced
Salt & pepper
1 cup heavy cream
2 cups pasta sauce - store bought or homemade
1 8-ounce package pasta - any kind

Season chicken on both sides.

Heat some olive oil in a large skillet. Add seasoned chicken and brown on all sides.

Remove chicken to a plate.

In the same skillet, add sliced onion and garlic and saute until tender and caramelized.

Return chicken to the skillet on top of the onions and garlic. Cover and simmer on low for about an hour or until chicken is done.

Remove chicken and add pasta sauce and cream. Stir to combine.

Cook pasta according to package direction.

Place a spoonful of pasta on a plate, top with chicken then cover with the creamy pasta sauce.

Here's the stuff you'll need.

Brown the chicken in some olive oil for a bit.

Remove the chicken then caramelize the onion with the garlic.


Add the chicken back in the skillet 
with the onions and cook it for a while.

Remove the chicken again and add the 
pasta sauce and the cream and stir.

Cook the pasta, add a chicken thigh and cover with sauce! 
Delish! And easy!
