Sheet Pan Chicken Murphy is hitting our dinner table this week! Sausage, chicken, potatoes and peppers tossed in a out of control delicious brown gravy!
So, sheet pan dinners are all the rage these days.
I haven’t gotten into them yet until today. And it was pretty amazing.
Combining chicken, sausage and potatoes in one dish – you can’t go wrong in my book. As anyone can tell you, adding sausage to any dinner makes it better in my opinion. Then add a peppery brown gravy to pull it all together…you’ve got a dinner that can’t be beat.
This Sheet Pan Chicken Murphy is ideal for entertaining, too. It’ll serve at least 6 adults, so even if you have more, just add a few more links of sausage or chicken thighs and you’ll squeeze out 8 no problem.
Also, if you have those kids who like all the different things…one likes chicken, one like sausage…one will only eat potatoes…this is the dinner for you. There’s something for everyone on this sheet pan and it’s going to make everyone happy.
It’s that kind of diner that you throw down on the table with a loaf of bread and a bottle or two of wine. Beer is totally acceptable too – that’ll be my choice for sure.
And easy? If you’re looking for easy I’ve got you covered…all you have to do is roast the chicken, sausage and potatoes then toss it all in this amazing brown gravy and you’ve got dinner for a crowd.
And a fun and crazy good dinner for a crowd.
Start out by roasting chicken thighs, potatoes and sausage.
Then add in the peppdew peppers – peppadew peppers are right in the pepper/pickle aisle at your store. They’re sweet and slightly spicy, the perfect amount of heat for this dinner.
While everything is roasting you can put together a simple brown gravy that’s made even more delicious with a few tablespoons of the pepper brine from the jar of peppers…
Take the Sheet Pan Chicken Murphy out of the oven and toss it all with the brown gravy and serve.
Everyone can dive in and get their favorite parts or all of it at once…
My favorite is all of it at once…and definitely with a few beers to wash it all down!
