Melissa Clark's Chicken Thighs w/ Jammy Tomatoes

I love Melissa Clark, she is a national treasure.

She is a frequent New York Times Food writer and her cookbooks are terrific. I love Dinner: Changing the Game for weeknight inspo.

She certainly changes the game here with these boneless chicken thighs, creating a jammy sauce w/ pancetta and sweet cherry tomatoes.

I was a good girl and followed the directions to a T and served this along with couscous (rice would be good too).

It was a bright spot on an otherwise boring day.
