Aglio e olio con pollo 2 by munchinees Aglio e olio con pollo 2 by munchinees
Aglio e olio con pollo - Garlic and oil with chicken.

One of my favorite spaghetti sauce after the creamy ones of course. I call this the "light" one because it won't make you that full compared to "heavier" ones like bolognese or carbonara sauces. ^^

And and.. the fact that it is super easy to do! Each time, I am bored and itching for something easy/fast to do, I go for the aglio olio!

So I made this from scratch. Using olive oil, chicken broth, chilli and parsley! And of course chicken. I must add the chicken! I can't live as a vegetarian, that much is assured! :)

The other one.

This picture is so inviting! You captured the texture of the chicken so well it looks like everything might pour out from my screen haha. How did you get the details so crystal clear?

I hope there is garlic (aglio) in there to be a true aglio olio. Looks good

Oh yes there is! Of course what's aglio olio without aglio right? Maybe I chopped it too small. ^^

When I first saw this picture on my phone, I was excited. If you were here, you'd probably see me salivating at this, and I knew I had to comment on this today :P

Firstly, I LOVE how you managed to capture the fresh explosion of colours! This picture makes me feel hungry for it, even though I immensely dislike chilli in my pasta.

Composition wise: Very pleasant background blur, and very smart use of a utensil to psychologically entice the viewer to feel hungry looking at it- it makes the viewer WANT to reach out into the screen and grab that fork and shove it into his/her mouth! Crop is well placed and diverts the viewer's eyes to the main focus point- which is the pasta.

lighting: no issues with this one, because all the shadows are appropriately highlighted and there are no over or underexposed areas in the photo.

overall, a fantastic piece, where there isn't anything i would have done differently. you nailed it!
