Chicken Neapolitan – Method & Instructions
Dice up onion.
Peel garlic and either dice or put in garlic crusher.
Chop up tomato into small pieces. There is no need to remove the skin.
Cut chicken into thick strips about an inch thick.
Put the olive oil in a deep pan.
Fry the chicken pieces in the deep pan on a slow heat.
While the chicken is cooking, you can make the tomato sauce.
To make the tomato sauce for the chicken Neapolitan
Melt the butter in a pot.
While you are cooking the sauce, remember to turn the chicken breast pieces.
Once the butter has melted, add the garlic, onions, fresh tomatoes, tin tomatoes and half a tube of tomato puree.
Mix all those ingredients with a wooden spoon. Your heat on the cooker should be of medium heat.
Add salt, pepper, turmeric, cumin, ginger, parsley, oregano, parsley and brown sugar (white is fine instead) into the tomato sauce.
Give the herbs a good stir into the tomato sauce.
Let it simmer away while the chicken pieces are cooking.
It is a good idea to cook tomato sauce in a deep pan as it can splash and be a bit messy.
Don’t forget to keep an eye on your chicken, turning it occasionally. Ideally you don’t want it crispy.
After 10 – 15 minutes, the tomato sauce now needs to be poured into the deep pan with the chicken.
Give the chicken and sauce a stir, making sure the chicken pieces are all covered well by the sauce.
Cook the chicken and tomato sauce for a further 10 minutes.
Chicken Neapolitan – Time for Spaghetti
While the tomato sauce and chicken is cooking, this is the time to cook the spaghetti pasta.
Place the spaghetti in a pot of hot water and cook for about 12 minutes or as directed on the packet.
Drain the pasta and rinse off starch with hot water.
Then add your cooked spaghetti into the deep pan of chicken and tomato sauce.
Mix it all around; making sure your spaghetti gets covered by the tomato sauce.
Serve it on a plate and grate some parmesan cheese on your chicken Neapolitan.
Enjoy your delicious chicken Neapolitan.
