Let's Make It
Heat dressing in large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 10 min. or until evenly browned, turning occasionally.
Stir in next 4 ingredients; cover. Simmer on medium-low heat 20 min. or until chicken is done (165°F), stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, cook spaghetti as directed on package, omitting salt.
Remove skillet from heat. Add Parmesan to chicken mixture; stir. Sprinkle with mozzarella; let stand 5 min. or until melted.
Drain spaghetti; place on platter. Top with chicken mixture.
Add 1/4 cup sliced black olives along with the peppers, tomatoes, tomato paste and garlic.
Since chicken thighs do not need long slow cooking times in order to tenderize them, they are more practical for quick weeknight dinners than other budget meat cuts.
