Chicken-1 whole bird, cut into pieces or legs & thighs (If you use boneless, skinless breasts, they will dry out badly by the time the potatoes cook).
White Potatoes-3-4, peeled & cut into wedges.
Sweet Potatoes-1 or 2, peeled and cut into pieces (not to small, or they will turn to mush).
Sweet Italian sausage-2 or 3 links, cut into 2 inch chunks.
Oil-2 or 3 tbsps.
Oregano-1 or 2 tbsp.
Salt & Pepper to taste (and if you want it to taste good, don’t be afraid to be generous with the salt).
Garlic-4 or 5 cloves, peeled and sliced.
Place chicken, potatoes & sausage into a very large roasting pan. Pour oil over the top. Add generous amount of salt and pepper. Crush organo between fingers over top of everything. Toss well with your hands until everything is coated with oil and spices. Spread evenly in pan. Tuck slices of garlic evenly throughout the pan. Cover with foil and bake covered at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. Uncover and continue baking until everything is browned and crispy (another 45-60 minutes).
Note: These are approximate amounts and times, just meant to give you an idea of how to make the dish. You can leave the sausage out if you’d like; you can substitute carrots for the sweet potatoes; you can increase or decrease the amount of garlic; or you can use different herbs like Italian seasoning. Just have fun with it.

I made up this recipe for Lauren’s high school graduation party. there are no exact measurements for any of the ingredients. So you decide to try it, you’ll just have to “wing” it.
*Boneless Chicken Breasts, Cut Into Chunks.
*Bread Crumbs & Flour Mixture.
*Eggs And A Little Water, Beaten.
*Oil And Margarine.
*Onions & Garlic, Very Finely Chopped.
*Black Olives Sliced.
*Fresh Mushrooms Sliced.
*Assorted Seasonings (Salt, Pepper, Parsley, Dill…Whatever You Like Best).
*Knorr Garlic Herb Pasta Sauce Mix.
Dip chicken first in the bread crumb/flour mixture, then into the egg/water mixture. Saute chicken in oil/margarine mixture until golden brown. Remove chicken from skillet to greased baking dish. Add onions, garlic, seasonings, and wine to skillet and cook until softened. Add mushrooms, olives, (and more wine if desired). Spread entire mixture over chicken. Prepare sauce mix as package directs and pour all over it. Bake in a 350 degree oven until heated through and you’re sure the chicken is completely cooked (20-30 minutes?)
If the chicken doesn’t turn out alright, you can always drink the rest of the wine and call Boston Market for take out.
