I will never tire of the different combinations of one-pot meals that can be thrown into the oven. All you are required to have to make a decent dinner is some chicken, and, I also happen to have some sausage this particular night, and you can add whatever dregs you have left in your fridge or pantry.
This time I happen to have a handful of green beans and a dozen baby yellow potatoes to get rid of. Into the oven they went for a stint, along with anything else I could find
Keeping the oven busy is a great way to disperse pleasant smells throughout the house, while you languish over a glass of wine, a little unimportant chatter, or, a peruse in a book or magazine.
After which time, you produce a delicious dinner, and keep everyone happy for another night!
You will need: 4 chicken thighs, bone-in, skin-on, 1 lb seasoned sausage (I used apple & onion, but any seasoned sausage will do), cut into 6″ pieces, 3 sprigs thyme, 6 or 7 sage leaves, 1 onion, halved and sliced into 1/2 moons, 1 doz baby yellow or white potatoes, 2 cups green beans, trimmed and cut in half if very long, 1 cup white wine, 1 cup chicken or veggie broth, 2 tbs extra-virgin olive oil, sea-salt and black pepper for seasoning, and to taste.
