    Cindy's Table shares its recipe for Chicken Scarpiello.


    • 1 pound boneless chicken breast
    • 1/2 pound chicken thighs, boneless
    • 2 Italian sausages (hot or sweet)
    • 1 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
    • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
    • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
    • 1 teaspoon onion powder
    • 2 red peppers, cut into chunks
    • 2-3 hot cherry peppers, drained, patted dry and chopped
    • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
    • 1 cup chicken broth/stock
    • 1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley, chopped


    1. Heat a large sauté pan over medium high heat.
    2. Cut the chicken into large pieces (or bite size) then add to a small bowl and season with salt, pepper, chicken, thyme, parsley and onion powder then toss around to coat.
    3. Slice the Italian sausage into 1 1/2 pieces.
    4. Add olive oil into the pan and once hot add in seasoned chicken. Let cook for about 3 minutes browning all sides. Add in sausage and continue cooking for another 7 minutes or so.
    5. Add in red peppers, cherry peppers and garlic. Move around the chicken and sausages to fit in the peppers and garlic. Let cook for another 5-6 minutes lowering the temperature to medium.
    6. Add in chicken broth and bring to a simmer. Let reduce by 1/4 and taste the broth for any additional seasonings.
