Spicy Italian-Style Chicken with Sausage, Peppers, and Onions
Why This Recipe Works
To bring the bright, flavorful ingredients that characterize this Italian chicken recipe together in a home-style, weeknight meal, we opted for split bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts that could easily be cut into halves or thirds to speed up cooking time. For our Scarpariello recipe, we needed to temper the heat of the hot cherry peppers, so we used fewer and removed the seeds. The final touch to this spicy Italian-style chicken recipe: After browning the sausage and chicken, then sautéing the vegetables, we nestled the chicken and sausage in the vegetables to finish cooking in the oven, which kept the chicken skin crisp.
