Ingredients

For the Dish

  • Bone-in Chicken Thighs
  • 2  Cups  Kalettes
  • 1/2  Cup  Sliced cherry tomatoes
  • Cloves Garlic - Minced
  • Jar Bruschetta (Roland)
  • Spicy Sausages - Sliced
  • 2  Tablespoons  Butter
  • 2  Tablespoons  Olive Oil
  • Red Pepper flakes to taste

Directions

For the Dish

- First, start off by sautéing 2 minced cloves of garlic in 1 tablespoon of butter and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Once the garlic becomes fragrant, add your sliced sausages.
- Season your chicken thighs with balsamic, your last minced clove of garlic, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, and your bruschetta.
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit.
- Once the sausages start to gain color, add your chicken thighs skin side down. Cook until browned a bit, about 5-7 minutes.
- Flip over and cook for about 5 more minutes.
- Add your kalettes and some sliced cherry tomatoes, add another tablespoon of butter and put your top on.
Stick in the oven for about 10 minutes and then test for doneness.
- Let sit for about 2 minutes so the juices can rest, and dig in!

Chicken Shopping Tip

Buy whole chickens and ask the butcher to quarter them for you. You will save an average of $5 per pound, or more.

Chicken Cooking Tip

Allow meat to rest for at least ten minutes before slicing into it; otherwise, the juices will leak out.
