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

METHOD

  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.

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.
