I love leftovers and especially during our Hewfit challenge I am hungry more often. Last night I made chicken scarpiello and packed up the extra chicken and chicken sausage and made this dish. I will share a recipe for you to cook up chicken if you don't have leftovers handy. Actually, go and pick up a rotisserie chicken. That would be super easy!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Place chicken thighs and sausage links on the baking sheet. Season chicken lightly with salt and pepper.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 25 minutes. Cool until easily handled, 5 to 10 minutes. Pull chicken apart. Slice sausage links.

  • Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add broccoli; cook and stir for 3 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, cherry peppers, jalapeno pepper, and garlic; cook until tomatoes soften, about 3 minutes. Stir in chicken and sausage slices.

  • Cut yellow squash into noodles using a spiralizer. Add to the skillet. Drizzle remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil over squash; toss with tongs until heated through, about 1 minute. Season with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. Melt butter on top.

Cook's Note:

Substitute ghee for the butter if desired.

It was wonderful. I followed the receipt explicitly. I used andouille chicken sausages from Trader Joe s and chicken breast sliced. I grated the Zucchini and added the herbs of oregano parsley and basil. It was divine. My man loved it as well. Thank you. Read More
