leftover pasta sauce? dark meat.

any jar of pasta sauce i buy is way more than i need for any one meal. i usually end up with a third of a jar left over.

so, the day after making pizza is a good day to find chicken thighs or drumsticks on sale, to use up the rest of the sauce.
at any moment in time, one of the big chains in town (links to all on the top right) will have them on sale for 99c a pound. and you have an easy snack for the next couple of days, to bake up with little preparation.

preheat oven to 350. coat the chicken with leftover tomato sauce, sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese (say, perhaps, some was also leftover from making the pizza) and bake for half an hour or so. (when you cook poultry, obey the rules for your own good!)

Good idea! I'm always looking for ways to use up extra red sauce.
