How to Make Chicken, Sausage and Peppers
- 1Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the sausage until golden, about 2 minutes. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, then toss with the flour in a bowl; add to the skillet and cook until browned but not cooked through, about 3 minutes.
- 2Add the onion, peppers, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste and cook 3 minutes. Add 1 cup of the chicken broth, scraping up any browned bits; bring to a boil and cook until slightly reduced, about 1 minute. Add the rest of the broth and bring to a gentle simmer. Cover and cook until the sausage and chicken are cooded through, about 5 minutes.
- 3Transfer the chicken, sausage and vegetables to a platter with a slotted spoon. Increase the heat to high and stir the parsley and cherry peppers and their liquid into the skillet; boil until reduced by one-third, 2-3 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the remaining 1 tablespoon butter. Pour the sauce over the chicken mixture.
- 4Note: This recipe calls for Italian frying peppers. I have no idea what they are and found nothing at the grocery store that appeared to be Italian. So, I bought a couple of other green peppers and used them. They had a little heat and worked great. So, I would say use what you can find.
- 5Note 2: This is great by itself but was also great with linguine. Next time I may try it with rice. Use your imagination and make it a great meal.
