Baked Chicken Murphy

C503b6f92c058a9be25b 550

Delicious and easy to make. Chunks of chickens, sausages, and fresh veggies are cooked with stewed tomatoes, which makes lots of tasty sauce. Serve it over a bed of rice or spaghetti. YUM!















1 ½ pounds chicken breast halves, boneless, skinless
about 4 whole chicken breasts
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
4 large potatoes
1 large onions
½ pounds mushrooms
fresh, quartered or sliced
½ each sweet red bell peppers
½ each green bell peppers
1 jar pepperoncini peppers
in vinegar
28 ounces tomatoes, stewed, canned
or whole, canned
1 ½ pounds italian sausage


Preheat oven to 350℉ (180℃).

Cut chicken into medium to large cubes and coat with sifted flour, set aside.

Slice onions and fresh peppers into thick strips. Set aside.

Pare mushrooms in half; set aside.

Slice sausage into 1 inch pieces; place in cast iron skillet and brown.

Set aside.

Using solid shortening, fry ingredients in this order:

Potato quarters - until golden brown.

Mushrooms to give a semi-crusty textyure (1 minute)

Peppers - to soften and brown slightly.

Onion - until they take on an translucent appearance (but still slightly crispy)

Chicken - until golden brown.

In an 8 X 12 pan or casserole dish, distribute evenly the sausage, peppers (red and green), onion strips, mushrooms, potatoes and chicken, giving a uniform appearance.

Pour whole tomatoes and purée (mixing with ½ cup puree) or whole can stewed tomatoes on top.

Gently mix into Murphy.

Pour entire jar of salad peppers over top, distribute evenly (make sure you add the liquid in the jar, also).

Bake, covered, for 45 minutes longer. Best when served with Italian or French bread.

Do you really use 4 pounds of boneless chicken breast and 1.5 pounds of sausage for 4-6 servings?

Updated to fix the serving size and amounts - it should have read 4 each chicken breast halves - ~ 1 1/2 pounds and serves 6. Thanks for pointing out the error!

Please, DO PRE-COOK THE POTATOES BEFORE PUTTING THEM IN THE PAN! Steam, boil, microwave until just done enough for a fork to pass through easily (do remove excess moisture with a kitchen towel though) - anything to make sure that the potatoes cook at the sametime as everything else! it's a CRUCIAL step that was omitted from the recipe!!
