1/2 c red onion ( chopped )
2 cloves garlic ( unpeeled, crushed )

One of the most amazing things about this absolutely delicious one-pan chicken pasta dish is the consistency of the sauce.

1 Tbsp canola oil - or any neutral oil
1 tsp salt, plus salt to taste
1 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp paprika

14 oz can of diced tomatoes - or 1 c chopped fresh tomatoes
