I adore helpful meals. This is one of them. There's barely any preparation, just fling a few chicken thighs and potatoes (don't bother peeling them) into a pan, chop up an onion, scatter a few garlic cloves here and there and toss in a few sausages, a couple of gulgs of olive oil and a handful of fresh herbs. Hey Presto, you have a dinner that tastes divine and everyone will be happy with something in the pan.
Roast Chicken Thighs with Sausage, Potatoes and Garlic.
Recipe adapted from Nigella Lawson.
6-8 chicken thighs, bone in, skin on.
A good handful of new potatoes with the skins on.
1 onion, quartered
6 sausages (I used chicken but pork would be delicious)
Salt and pepper
4-6 garlic cloves (in their skins)
A handful of fresh parsley
Heat the oven to 425 F
Place the chicken thighs, potatoes, sausages, onion and garlic in a shallow baking tray.
Pour over the olive oil, sprinkle over the salt and pepper and chopped parsley.
Place in the oven and roast for about 50 minutes. Baste a couple of times and spoon off any excess juice so everything crisps up nicely.
Remove from the oven, sprinkle with extra chopped parsley and dig in.
