This in one of those hearty, fill your tummy till it’s happy, meals. I make it often. Especially when the weather is cool. Lately it’s been too hot. But I made it anyway……what the heck. I use chicken thighs, but chicken breasts or legs work too. I use Italian sausage……the hot and spicy kind, but you can use mild. The flavor in this dish is incredible….you have the chicken and the sausage. Then, you have the onion and tomato. Put it all together and my, my. Oh, and I serve this with rice. The plain white rice absorbs all that juice….all those wonderful flavors. Oh, and its one of those dishes that tastes better the next day, so make a little extra. So-oo-o-o good.
4 chicken thighs
3 Italian sausage links, cut in halves
1 small onion, sliced
2 cloves of fresh garlic, minced
2 medium-sized potatoes, cut in quarters
1 large can and 1 medium can of whole tomatoes
In a large skillet or pot, brown chicken thighs in a bit of oil. Add sausage, onion, garlic, potatoes and tomatoes. Let it come to a boil, over medium heat. Once it starts to boil, lower heat to a simmer, cover and cook for about 45 minutes. Test chicken for doneness. Serve over prepared rice.
