HL Café’s Chicken with Sausage, Peppers, & Onions
- 1 lb sweet Italian sausage links
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 2 1/2 tsp minced garlic
- 1 heaping cup julienned red and yellow bell peppers
- 1 heaping cup julienned onion
- 1/2 tsp fresh oregano
- 1/4 tsp dried basil
- Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1 14.5-oz can crushed tomatoes
This rustic dish positively sings with the flavors of Italy and is fantastic served with pasta. If you want to spice things up a bit, use hot Italian sausage instead of sweet, and feel free to toss some curls of Pecorino Romano on top just before serving.
Heat oven to 400°F. Place sausage links in single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet and roast until internal temperature has reached 165°F, about 20-25 minutes, turning once. Remove from oven, cool, then slice into rounds. In large skillet or wok, heat olive oil over med-high heat. Add garlic, peppers, and onion and sauté until soft, about 5-10 minutes. Add oregano, basil, crushed red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Add tomatoes and sausage, then simmer for 5 more minutes. Serve.
