Chicken Confetti hearty and delicious with a fresh-tasting sauce. "Before our children grew up and started out on their own, this was a real favorite around our house," relates Sundra Lewis of Bogulusa, Louisiana, who shares the recipe.


  • 1 broiler/fryer chicken (3 pounds), cut up
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1 package (7 ounces) spaghetti, cooked and drained


  1. Sprinkle chicken with 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown chicken in oil. Remove chicken and set aside.
