So much yes here. Juicy, tender, perfectly cooked chicken thighs. The creamiest, sauciest, garlicky sun dried tomato cream sauce. Sneaked-in greens (always a plus). And freshly grated Parmesan?

YES YES YES.

When I’m feeling super fancy, I’ll serve this with my favorite IP mushroom risotto and all the crusty bread. Oh and extra Parmesan for serving. Because you can never ever have enough.

Gnocchi with Proscuitto and Fig Jam

I was just sitting here going through my food pictures trying to pick something to write about. Even though I just came back from grocery shopping and then eating dinner I kept saying ooh did I share that already, damn that looks good. We should make that again damn now I am hungry again. My daughter made this a few weeks ago from Ayesha Curry’s The Full Plate cookbook.


The one I am going to share was so good and very simple to make. I did wonder why we didn’t have a finished dish photo to share so forgive me for that. But It was a little salty, a little sweet and was definitely comfort food.

We always have pancetta, prosciutto and the fig jam in the fridge.  Chicken stock is usually in the freezer and I usually have gnocchi in the freezer but we haven’t been able to go to Montreal where I usually bring home so much fresh made pasta, gnocchi and bread that we had to go to the store for gnocchi, I have said a dozen times; just learn how to make it. Someday!!! side note the fig jam is fantastic on a cheese plate so don’t think you are buying it for one recipe. I usually pick up a jar once a month.

  • add the gnocchi to the boiling water and cook according to the package instructions. Drain reserving 1 cup of the water.
  • turn the pan with the prosciutto back on to medium heat, add the gnocchi and stock, cook while stirring until the stock reduces, 3-5 minutes. Stir in the butter, thyme and jam.
