Chicken Bolognese with Crispy Oregano

Chicken Bolognese with Crispy Oregano - Chew Nibble Nosh

If you were to ask me what my all time favorite pasta sauce is, I would answer, without hesitation, that it is THIS Bolognese sauce.  I posted that recipe a few years ago, and things haven’t changed.  It’s still my all time favorite.

That said, it’s a time-consuming sauce.  One that’s meant for a day when I have time to spend in the kitchen.  On days when I don’t have time to spend in the kitchen, this lightened up, chicken-based Bolognese sauce is a fantastic alternative.  It came together in minutes, and my family devoured it in just a few as well.  It’s fresh and light, and great for a night when you’re craving comfort food, but not so much craving the work involved.

There’s just something about roasted chicken that comforts me.  You walk into a house where a chicken is roasting and it just smells so good, and it feels cozy right away.  The problem is, a lot of times, roasted chicken just ends up tasting like…well…chicken.  Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but when I can find a roasted chicken recipe that’s packed with flavor on top of that already-there chickeniness (Yes, I made that up.), I declare it a winner.

This is one of those “Don’t judge a book by its cover” recipes, or in this case, “Don’t judge a recipe by its pictures”.  The pictures are far from glamorous, but this recipe was so simple, and so delicious, you need to give it a chance.

I’m always looking for ways to get (read: force) my kids to eat more fish.  Tilapia, since it’s so mild, is one of the few fishes that they’ll actually try when I put it on their plates.  They usually end up enjoying it, even though they’ll swear they don’t the next time I put it on their plates…out of stubbornness.  Why do kids do that?  It’s like the whole baby-fussing-because-she-doesn’t-want-to-nap thing.  I don’t get it.  I would KILL for a nap most days.  Why fight it?  Same with dinner.  If you like it, admit it!
