Nope. Not even joking here.

This here comes together in one pan, which pretty much means zero clean-up.

And as always, chicken breast can easily be substituted if dark meat is not your jam.

Either way, this needs to make an appearance on your dinner table soon, preferably on one of those busy weeknights!

    I made it with skinless, boneless thighs and it turned out great. Used a foil covered cookie sheet and the chicken was super moist. Next time I’ll use a little less salt, since the sausage is already a bit salty.

    Oh my!!

    This was fantastic! I can’t wait to try it with chorizo! Next time I will season under the skin as well as on top. That last few minutes of broiling made the chicken skin so crispy. I added parsnips because I wanted an extra vegetable and it was yummy. My husband loved it. My grocery didn’t have chicken andouille so I used regular pork andouille- still delicious. This is the third or fourth recipe I’ve made from Damn Delicious and all have been wonderful, thanks for helping me enjoy cooking again!

  4. An easy and delicious family favorite that please picky eaters! Thank you!

  5. I plan to try this fabulous looking meal this week. Quick question, my hubs and I are doing low-carb so will make this meal sans the potatoes. I was wondering, if radishes would be a good substitute for the potatoes? Any thoughts or recommendations would be greatly appreciated>

  6. It tasted delicious, but is there a way to prepare it so that there isn’t so much grease?

  7. Will try this tonight. Would you recommend any other vegetables to add to the pan?

  8. Very delicious, came out perfect. Thanks for the great recipe!

    Hope you’re having fun in Seattle!

    Ciao, Giovanni

  9. Hi! I misread the ingredients and bought uncooked sausage. Do you think I should cook it first or just let it cook in the pan with the chicken and slice it after? Thanks!!

  10. I am a little confused. Step 3 says to put chicken then combine the zest etc, do you pour that over the potatoes sausage etc or combine in a bowl? Also if you already have the chicken down, why do you top with chicken?

    • Step 3: Place sausage and potatoes in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet. Stir in olive oil, garlic and lemon zest; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Top with chicken in a single layer.

      Only the sausage and potatoes are tossed with olive oil, garlic, lemon zest, salt and pepper onto the baking sheet. Then it’s topped with the chicken thighs. The chicken is not placed on the baking sheet before this step.

  11. looks very appetizing and probably all very tasty, I love chicken and always cook your recipe .Spasibo.

  12. Made it tonight it sad delicious!!

  13. My mouth is watering right now! Is it possible that I can use regular potatoes, if I’m unable to find baby potatoes? Thanks, Chungah!! 🙂

  14. Such a terrific blend of flavors, the sausage, chicken, potatoes and seasonings.  I do usually cook chicken skinless, so maybe I’ll try covering it with foil during part of the cooking time, to keep the moisture in and then take the cover off to let it brown.  Thanks for the wonderful recipe!

  15. This chicken looks so good! Love the simplicity of one-pan meals! 🙂

  16. I tend to cook my chicken skinless as most people in my home don’t like the skin on (more’s the pity). Is there anything I can do to keep the chicken from getting super dry when baking it?

  17. This chicken looks perfect! So mouthwatering!

  18. I love meals like this (one-pot wonders)!!   

  19. Yum, this looks soo good. Your up close photos always turn out so well! I love one pot meals… super simple when I get home from work! 

  20. Looks absolutely amazingly delicious, but I’m a bit confused:

    You wrote that “All in one. single. skillet.”, then you go on to say that this is made
    on a “sheet pan” in the oven.  So, is is adaptable for skillet as well as sheet pan?

    Thanks in advance, you’re recipes have saved me from some kitchen emergencies!  :))

    • Christopher, you can use a sheet pan or an oven-proof skillet – either works! 🙂

      • Thank you!  I went for it in an oven proof skillet, and it’s
        ANOTHER KEEPER!  

        This got RAVE reviews from neighbors that we had over for dinner a couple nights ago,
        and the “recipe was requested by one of them”.  

        Thanks for the great, easy and tasty recipes!!!!!!!!!!!!  :))
