This hearty chicken dish is sure to please. A friend gave me the recipe years ago, and I've since added a couple ingredients of my own.
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 1-1/4 hours
- 1 can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes
- 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) Italian diced tomatoes
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
- 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
- 1 medium green pepper, julienned
- 1 medium sweet red pepper, julienned
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 6 garlic cloves, minced

- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 2 broiler/fryer chickens (3 to 4 pounds each), cut up and skin removed
- 1 pound Italian sausage links, sliced

- In a large roasting pan, combine the first 13 ingredients. Place the chicken and sausage over tomato mixture.
