3. Marry Me chicken
> What it is: Chicken breast in cream sauce

One story is that some unnamed magazine food editors were testing this recipe – which calls for heavy cream, parmigiano, herbs, garlic, and sun-dried tomatoes (sometimes garnished with bacon) – when one of them said it was so good, she’d marry it if she could. Another explanation of the name is that cooking it for a prospective spouse will seal the deal. (There’s also something called Engagement chicken – a whole bird rubbed with lemon juice.)

2. Cincinnati chili
> What it is: Greek-style meat sauce

No Texan would recognize this as chili. Developed by Greek immigrants in Cincinnati in the 1920s, it’s flavored with such spices as cinnamon, clove, cumin, and nutmeg and is served over spaghetti, topped with various combinations of shredded cheddar, beans, and chopped onions.

1. Sugo
> What it is: Tomato sauce

“Sugo” is simply the Italian word for “sauce.” It generally means a long-simmered tomato sauce, pretty much the same as the sauce on the spaghetti at the other end of this list, from the Hulu series “The Bear.”
