Chicken, Sausage, Peppers, and Potatoes

Updated: Feb 15, 2020

  • 4 large links hot Italian sausage

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • 6 bone-in, skin on chicken thighs

  • ½ pound assorted sweet peppers, seeded

  • 1 small onion, sliced

  • ½ yellow onion, sliced

  • 4 large potatoes, quartered

  • 2 teaspoons dried Italian herbs

  • 2 teaspoons salt, plus more as needed

  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • Chopped fresh Italian parsley (optional)


Directions/Instructions Checklist

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).


Step 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.


Step 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.


Step 4

Cut two slashes down to the bone on the skin side of each chicken thigh.


Step 5

Depending on the size of the peppers, halve or quarter them and place in a large mixing bowl. Add the sliced onions and potato chunks. Add chicken thighs and sausage pieces with pan juices.


Step 6

Season with salt, black pepper, and Italian herbs. Drizzle with a tablespoon of olive oil.


Step 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.


Step 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.
