Sage Chicken & Sausage with Potatoes & Onions from Lemony Thyme

Lemony Thyme is certainly a favorite herb around here, but her sister Sage is a close second.  I love this recipe from Nigella Lawson for Sage and Onion Roasted Chicken & Sausage.  We’ve lightly adapted it to use boneless chicken breasts, turkey sausages, and we include potatoes to round out the dish.

The lemon and fresh sage combine to bring the wonderful marinade to life.  Allow the ingredients to marinade in the refrigerator overnight, or up to two days for maximum flavor.  Then bring the mixture to room temperature before roasting.  This one-pan meal is perfect for year round entertaining.  The aromas dancing through your kitchen as Sage Roasted Chicken & Sausage {with Potatoes & Onions} roast will have them gathered round the table.
