  • Reduce heat and slowly add marinara/spaghetti sauce to the skillet.
  • Add chicken back to the skillet and bring sauce to a simmer over medium-low heat.
  • Simmer for about 25 minutes or until chicken thighs are cooked through.
  • Before serving, top with mozzarella (optional) and fresh basil.
