This makes a great one-dish entree, easy and hearty. Since the recipe is timed in 15-minute increments, it's easy to start the next step while the previous step is in the oven. I made this as a meal to take to a shut-in, since everything is there is one baking pan, and the servings can easily be increased by adding more chicken thighs, sausage links, or vegetables. With a tossed salad on the side, it's very satisfying. My family has asked me to make it again soon!
