This is a meal I have been putting together for ages. This always gets gobbled up. I serve this over cooked rice pasta or on it’s own with a fresh buttered GF bun to soak up the juices.
2 chicken drumsticks
2 chicken thighs
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon smoked paprika, plus more for sprinkling over chicken
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste
1 onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 (28 oz) can diced tomatoes
1 pound cooked GF Italian pork sausage, cut into chunks
In a large skillet, bring enough oil to coat bottom of pan to medium-high heat.
Cook onions and garlic until onions are translucent; pour into a roasting pan and set aside.
Once again, in the same skillet, bring enough oil to coat bottom of pan to medium-high heat.
Season the chicken pieces generously with smoked paprika and with salt, pepper to taste; brown the chicken on all sides.
Remove chicken pieces and set aside.
Mix the remaining items together in the roasting pan with the onions and garlic and top with chicken pieces, skin side facing up.
Roast in a 450 degrees Fahrenheit oven for 50 minutes or until chicken is cooked through basting after 30 minutes.
