When you open our eyes, ugh ..you sigh hard in anger that these non matching items have not magically vanished? This happened to me like last week! Have no fear fabulous eaters, this recipe will save you the next time your dinner is in shambles.
4 pieces chicken quarters legs/thighs, cleaned skin on
1/2 lb sausage, cut into large chunks
2 small sweet potatoes, peeled, and cut in large chunks
3 red potatoes, washed, skin on or off cut into large chunks
1 lb shiitake mushrooms, stems off and cut in half
1 sweet yellow onion, cut into large chunks
6 garlic cloves, peeled
4 stems of fresh rosemary, cut into 4 pieces
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium skillet heat oil. Season chicken with salt and pepper and add chicken thighs, skin side down in skillet and brown for 5 minutes. Turn over on the other side and cook chicken thighs for 5 more minutes and set to the side. In a large mixing bowl add all of your remaining ingredients including the sausage, and toss with a little oil and salt and pepper to taste. Pour mixture out into a large oven proof baking dish, place a few chunks of butter on top, and cook until the potatoes are half way cooked through. Add semi-cooked chicken thighs to potato mix and place in the broiler until chicken is cooked through on the bone, and the potatoes are cooked and crispy.
