Instructions

Chicken

  • Preheat oven to 375°. Heat Skillet.
  • Heat olive oil in a cast-iron skillet. Pat chicken thighs dry with a paper towel and season generously with Slap Ya Mama - Original Blend Cajun Seasoning. Heat skillet on medium-high heat. Add to the heated skillet, skin side down.
  • Brown chicken until skin is crispy and golden, turn chicken to skin side up, transfer pan to the preheated oven, and roast for 20 minutes.
  • When the chicken has roasted for 20 minutes, turn off the oven and leave to stay warm until the noodles are done.

Sauce

  • In a large non-stick skillet, heat butter and add your celery, onion, and bell pepper. Sautee until soft and a little browned along the edge.
  • Deglaze with the white wine! (Pour the wine into the pan and stir well, scraping up any browned bits of veg).
  • Add all of the remaining ingredients- fire-roasted green chiles, petite diced tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, lemon zest, lemon juice, bay leaves, and thyme.
  • Bring the skillet to a boil, then reduce heat to medium/low and simmer while you cook the linguine.

Linguine

  • Drizzle some oil in a large pot of boiling salted water, add 1 tablespoon of salt and the linguine, and cook for 7 to 10 minutes, or according to the directions on the package.
  • Serve cooked noodles with the chunky sauce from your non-stick skillet and your roasted chicken. Top with Parmesan and Slap Ya Mama-Pepper Sauce!
