Easy Chicken Cacciatore

I made this for dinner tonight, and true to its name, it is an easy recipe!

1 chicken, cut up, skin removed *I used 1 boneless, skinless chicken tenderloin package from Costco
2 Tblsp. butter
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 Tsp salt
1 jar (16 oz.) spaghetti sauce
1 cup water
3/4 cup carrots
1 cup elbow macaroni or rotini *I used bowtie pasta =)
3 Tblsp. chopped fresh parsley
Parmesan cheese

In a 10-inch skillet, sauté chicken in butter until golden brown. *At this point I also seasoned the chicken with seasoning salt, garlic salt, chicken bouillon and poultry seasoning. Add onions and continue cooking for 5 minutes. Drain off any excess fat; add salt, spaghetti sauce and water. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
Add carrots and pasta. Cover and simmer for 25 to 30 minutes longer, until carrots are tender and pasta is done. *At this point I added a little more of the previously mentioned salt and seasonings, to taste.
Garnish with parsley and parmesan cheese.

Serves 4-6
