Chicken, Sausage, Peppers, and Potatoes

Rated as 4.77 out of 5 Stars

"You'll need a large, heavy-duty roasting pan (or a couple of smaller ones) and a very hot oven for this delicious dish. The long oven time makes everything beautifully caramelized and the chicken fork tender."

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook sausage links until browned and oil begins to render, about 3 minutes per side. While sausages are cooking, pierce them lightly here and there with the tip of a sharp knife so some fats and juices are released. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
  3. When sausages are cool enough to handle, cut them into serving pieces, about 2-inch slices. Transfer back to pan along with any accumulated juices from the cutting board.
  4. Cut two slashes down to the bone on the skin side of each chicken thigh.
  5. Depending on the size of the peppers, halve or quarter them and place in a large mixing bowl. Add the sliced red and yellow onions and potato chunks. Add chicken thighs and sausage pieces with pan juices.
  6. Season with kosher salt, black pepper, and Italian herbs. Drizzle with a tablespoon of olive oil.
  7. Mix with your hands until all ingredients are coated in oil, 3 or 4 minutes. Transfer to large, heavy-duty roasting pan. Evenly space the chicken thighs skin side up. Position potatoes near the top.
  8. Place in preheated oven until chicken is cooked through and everything is caramelized, about 1 hour. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Sprinkle with chopped fresh Italian parsley, if desired.

This is divine!! My husband, who rarely gives out compliments, adored it. Definitely use a gorgeous Italian sausage. I don't know if Chef John intended using precooked or smoked types. The flavo...

We LOVE this recipe. It is great when you have a crowd to feed. I generally don’t brown the sausage ahead of time as I find it browns up just fine in the pan (and I use mild sausage so I don’t g...
