This is a "lazy" supper. Can be prepared early in the morning and refrigerated till time to bake. Great flavor combo. Using hot sausage adds a Bam!
- 4 large potatoes, scrubbed and cut in wedges
- 1 lb sweet Italian sausage links or 1 lb hot Italian sausage
- 1 (3 1/2 lb) chicken, cut into pieces
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- fresh black pepper
- 1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 3 basil leaves
- Preheat oven 350°.
- In a 9x13-inch pan, place oil.
- Add potatoes rolling in oil to coat.
- Arrange chicken and sausage, rolling chicken to coat lightly.
- Pour the combined tomatoes and seasonings over all.
- Bake at 350° uncovered for 1 hour 15 minutes.
- Note: Stacking chicken on top of potatoes is fine.
This dinner was excellent!! It was easy to prepare, with readily available ingredients. I had to double the recipe to accommodate everyone, and barely had enough left to call "leftovers". I prepared this recipe as stated in the instructions, with the exception of cooking time. Since I more than doubled the amount of chicken, I extended the cooking time by about 30 minutes. (I used 8 thighs, because that was what I had on hand, and cooked everthing in a large roasting pan.) The Italian sausage gave the entire dish a wonderful flavor, especially the potatoes which absorbed all the meat juices. My "Picky Panel of Judges" gave this a resounding 5 stars!
The "Pest" is baaaack! I saw this recipe featured on the front page and decided it sounded good for dinner this evening! I was right on! Absolutely deelicious, Barb. How easy is it to throw all the goodies in a pan and toss in the oven. We both waddled away from the table! I didn't read close enough, and just put thighs in whole! Still came out lovely! Thanks for sharing a dandy! We really enjoyed. LC
While this recipe had good flavor I felt it didn't have enough sauce to it. I used fresh basil and rosemary. I know I didn't use 3 1/2 lbs of chicken and if I did 1 tablespoon of oil and 1 can of tomatoes would never have covered it all. I even put the canned tomatoes in the blender because we don't like big chunks of tomatoes, so it was stretched out even more in quantity. I used 4 good sized chicken drumsticks and 1 lb of sausage cut into bite sized chunks. I browned both the sausage and chicken in olive oil first to give it color. I loved the flavor and will definitely do this one again but I think I will either use jarred spaghetti sauce or I will double the tomatoes. Very good base, can do lots with this.
