To begin, season the chicken thighs with salt and pepper. In a large skillet or Dutch oven, brown the sausage over medium-high heat. Once the sausage is browned, remove it from the skillet and set it aside.

Next, add the chicken to the skillet and brown it on both sides. Once the chicken is browned, remove it from the skillet and set it aside with the sausage.

In the same skillet, add the onion and garlic. Cook until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Then, add the white wine and balsamic vinegar to the skillet and stir to scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook until the liquid is reduced by half.

Add the chicken broth and diced tomatoes to the skillet and the browned sausage and chicken. Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook for about 15 minutes, until the chicken is cooked.

Finally, stir in the chopped parsley and serve the Chicken Scarpariello over pasta or rice. This dish is perfect for a family dinner or even a special occasion.

Batali’s recipe is a delicious take on the classic Chicken Scarpariello dish, and its blend of sweet, savory, and tangy flavors is sure to please any palate. Give it a try and let the taste of the dish transport you to the streets of Italy.
