Just like yesterday’s meal this is a dish that includes a lot of chopped vegetables. I chopped up onions, fennel, leek, herbs, olives, and tomatoes. The original recipe called for a whole chicken set upon all these vegetables to cook. Since we were only cooking for the two of us we made three boneless, skinlesss thighs and since I didn’t want extra fat, I roasted the vegetables in the oven and John cooked the chicken thighs sous vide.
When the chicken was almost ready we cooked up some pasta and adjusted the vegetables to a sauce like consistency with some tomato paste and petite diced tomatoes. After nestling the chicken in the vegetables and pasta and adding some fresh herbs on top, it was dinner time!
