Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 45 minutes


  • 4 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • 4 bone-in, skin-on chicken drumsticks
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 sweet Italian sausages, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon butter


  1. Season the chicken thighs and drumsticks with salt and pepper. Dredge them in flour, shaking off any excess.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken pieces and cook until browned on all sides, about 8-10 minutes. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
  3. In the same skillet, add the sausage pieces and cook until browned, about 5 minutes. Remove the sausage from the skillet and set aside.
  4. Add the sliced onion to the skillet and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the minced garlic and cook for an additional minute.
  5. Add the sliced bell peppers to the skillet and cook until they begin to soften, about 5 minutes.
  6. Pour in the chicken broth and white wine, scraping the bottom of the skillet to release any browned bits.
