Chicken Cacciatore

I often forget to share the simple recipes - you know, those recipes that are really just an idea that you throw together. How could anyone really be interested in how I made that? Last night, my husband made chicken cacciatore. It was something that I used to make quite often - funny how our diet goes in cycles. I had totally forgotten it until he suggested making it for dinner.
I know there are tons of recipes out there for chicken cacciatore but they all are more complicated than ours. I'm sure you know someone who makes this and didn't even know what it's called.

Chicken Cacciatore
Chicken parts (we used 4 thighs but you can use whatever so long as you have 1 piece per person as a minimum)
1 jar garden vegetable spaghetti sauce
parmesan cheese
1 package noodles
Lay chicken, single layer, in baking dish. Cover with spaghetti sauce. Bake at 350 for 30-45 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked (this will depend on your cut of chicken).
While the chicken is resting outside of the oven, cook the noodles according to the package directions. Serve the chicken with sauce over the noodles and top with cheese.

These are also the hardest recipes to write (as you may have noticed) because we just throw everything together. Make sure you have enough pasta to feed your group and enough sauce to cover the chicken and it will all work out. Serve with a salad.
