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.

This was great! What a nice and easy weekday supper! I used boneless chicken breast and I added a can of mushrooms. I was also out of garlic and used garlic powder. Yum! I love the chicken & sausage together. I'll do this again!

This was tasty. I was a bit disappointed that the chicken was dry, but the flavor combination was nice, and this dish was a quick and simple dinner. Thanks!

I doubled the recipe and overcooked (4 hrs) so it was dry with no liquid. Otherwise okay.
