One Pot Chicken and Sausage Skillet (Chicken Scarpariello)


One Pot Chicken and Sausage Skillet (Chicken Scarpariello)

This healthy chicken recipe from Anne Colagioia is super simple to make, and is loaded with flavor. Chicken Scarpariello is an Italian-style one pot chicken dish featuring sausage and heaps of vegetables. This is one of the tastiest one pot meals around.


This dish can also be finished on the stove top by simply covering the pan, lowering the heat and allowing it to simmer for 20-25 minutes. If you want the chicken skin to remain crisp finishing it in the oven works best.

For a mild dish omit the hot cherry peppers.
