Ingredients

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

3/4 pound sweet or hot Italian sausage, cut into chunks

3/4 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into chunks

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper 

1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

1 small onion, chopped

2 Italian green frying peppers, cut into 1-inch pieces

3 cloves garlic, roughly chopped

1/2 cup dry white wine

3/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth

1/4 cup roughly chopped fresh parsley

2 jarred pickled cherry peppers, chopped, plus 2 tablespoons liquid from the jar

Directions

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the sausage until golden, about 2 minutes. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, then toss with the flour in a bowl; add to the skillet and cook until browned but not cooked through, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add the onion, peppers, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste and cook 3 minutes. Add the wine, scraping up any browned bits; bring to a boil and cook until slightly reduced, about 1 minute. Add the broth and bring to a gentle simmer. Cover and cook until the sausage and chicken are cooked through, about 5 minutes.
  3. Transfer the chicken, sausage and vegetables to a platter with a slotted spoon. Increase the heat to high and stir the parsley and cherry peppers and their liquid into the skillet; boil until reduced by one-third, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the remaining 1 tablespoon butter. Pour the sauce over the chicken mixture.
