Mama Dini Wood-fired Chicken and Sausage
Chicken so good it will make your taste buds tingle!
1 cup onion, chopped or sliced
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon Black Satin Spice Mama Dini Spice Blend
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
5 chicken legs or thighs
2 links sweet Italian sausage, lightly scored
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons butter
¼ cup grated parmesan
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. If using a woodfire oven, fire the oven to temperature and scoop the fire to one side.
In a large bowl, combine chicken, spice blend, salt, pepper, and oil and toss to coat. Place onions in the bottom of a cast-iron skillet. Position chicken on top of the onions and put sausage in the pan around the edge. Cover with foil. If cooking in home oven, place skillet on the bottom rack for 15-20 minutes until the meat of the chicken leg starts to pull away from the narrow end of the bone. Pull off foil let the chicken brown up, about 5 minutes. Turn the chicken and sausage over in the pan and return to oven for 10 minutes until golden brown. Total cook time about 40 minutes. Remove from oven.
If cooking in woodfire, place skillet to the side of oven opposite of fire with foil on. After 10 minutes, remove foil and let chicken brown. Turn quarter-turn every few minutes or so until each side is golden brown. Total cook time about 20 minutes. Remove from fire.
