Pappardelle with Creamy Chicken SauceThis rich and creamy pasta dish is a great example of how satisfying Italian comfort food can be. Instead of pappardelle, try the recipe with tagliatelle or fettuccine.
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 7 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch pieces (2 pounds total)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced medium
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 pound pappardelle
servings:6
  1. In a large Dutch oven or heavy pot, heat oil over medium-high. Season chicken with salt and pepper and cook until it releases its juices and is almost cooked through, about 7 minutes. Add onion and cook until translucent, stirring occasionally, about 6 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add cream and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a rapid simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 15 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta until al dente. Reserve 1 cup pasta water; drain pasta and add to sauce, tossing to combine and adding enough pasta water to create a creamy sauce that coats pasta. Serve immediately.
