This recipe was the result of a few ingredients I had but no idea what I was going to do with them. It came together with some memories of a greek chicken dish I had been served way back when I was in high school. I added a few things and it became a hit on a cold Sunday afternoon.

How to Make Peasant Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. Quarter potatoes, onions, red and green peppers into large chunks. Place in the bottom of a large roaster pan.
  2. Add sausage links and 3 chopped garlic cloves.
  3. Pour canned tomatoes over all and add lemon juice, salt and pepper and cinnamon.
  4. Place chicken pieces on top and add remaining garlic on top of chicken.
  5. Place in 375 preheated degree oven and cook 45 minutes.
  6. The chicken on the top should be starting to brown a little and the juices increasing. Now pour in the rice and stir it into the bottom so that it begins to soak up the juices.
  7. Cook about 40 minutes more. Serve in bowls with some pieces of everything and offer crusty bread to dip into liquid in bowl.
    Enjoy.
