This recipe was one of those nights when I had certain ingredients in my house and no idea what I was going to make. I threw some things together and my husband and I just loved it! So I wrote it down, made it again, and it was just as delicious as the first time I made it. This recipe makes a decent amount, my husband and I are full and we have left overs! Hope you enjoy this Spiced Chicken Recipe!
- chicken thighs (or breasts if you prefer, my husband and I prefer the dark meat)
- 4 spicy sausages
- 2 sweet potatoes
- black pepper
- olive oil
Preheat the oven to 450 Degrees. Start by browning the chicken in a frying pan with a little olive oil. As they are browning I sprinkle them with basil, thyme and black pepper. When the outsides look cooked remove them from the pan and place into a large casserole dish.
Now take the four spicy sausages and do the same. Place them in the skillet where the chickens just were and brown the outsides.
When they’ve browned, slice them into bite size pieces. The insides wont be cooked, don’t worry, their going back in the oven to get fully cooked. After the sausages are cut, place them in the casserole dish with the chicken. Next, cut up the two sweet potatoes into bite size pieces and throw them into the same skillet with 1 Tbls olive oil. As they cook sprinkle them with the basil, thyme and black better. When slightly softened, throw them in the pan with the chicken and sausage.
Put the casserole dish in the oven. Cook for 15 minutes, then turn over the chickens and cook for another 15 minutes. Check the sweet potatoes and if they are not to your desired softness cover the casserole dish with foil and cook for up to 7 minutes. I always check that the chickens are cooked all the way through, and if they are this dish is ready to serve!
My husband and I made a quick salad to put on the side and enjoyed a great hearty meal! Hope you enjoy it!
