This flavorful skillet dinner has become a favorite at LaVonne Cunningham's home in Colfax, Illinois. "It's a great way to use chicken and makes a comforting meal for two," she writes.


  • 2 bone-in chicken thighs (about 3/4 pounds), skin removed
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) stewed tomatoes, cut up
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 3/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Dash pepper
  • Hot cooked spaghetti
  • 2 tablespoons sliced pimiento-stuffed olives, optional


  1. In a skillet, brown chicken in oil over medium-high heat for about 3 minutes on each side. Add garlic; cook and stir about 45 seconds. Stir in the tomatoes, bay leaf, sugar, basil, salt and pepper.
  2. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes or until chicken juices run clear and chicken is tender.
  3. Simmer, uncovered, until sauce reaches desired thickness. Discard bay leaf. Serve over spaghetti. Garnish with olives if desired.
