A one-pot meat chock-full of whole chicken pieces, chunks of potatoes, and sweet ears of corn.

Ingredients

  • 1 3-pound chicken, cut into pieces
  • 24 pearl onions
  • 3 medium potatoes
  • 2 ears of corn
  • 2 garden tomatoes (or 1 14.5-ounce can whole tomatoes with juice), chopped
  • 1 small yellow squash
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into chunks
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, cut into chunks
  • 1 orange bell pepper, cut into chunks
  • 1 head garlic
  • 14.5 oz can no-salt chicken broth
  • 2 Tbs olive oil + 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 Tbs fresh sage (or 2 teaspoons dried sage), chopped
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper, divided
  • 1/8 tsp oregano
  • 1/8 tsp garlic salt

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Cut 6-inch square piece of aluminum foil. Slice 1/2-inch off top of garlic and set head on foil. Drizzle garlic with 1 teaspoon olive oil; wrap in foil and bake for 40 minutes, until soft. Remove and set aside to cool.
  • Season chicken parts with garlic salt, oregano and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. In large soup pot over medium-high heat, warm 2 tablespoons olive oil. Add chicken and saute until browned, about 5 minutes per side. Remove chicken and set aside. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon of liquid. Add bell peppers and saute for 2 minutes. Open foil and squeeze garlic out of skin, adding to pot.
  • Stir in tomatoes with juice and broth; replace chicken. Bring to simmer over high heat; reduce to low and let stew for 15 minutes. While stew is simmering, peel pearl onions and potatoes. Cut potatoes into 1-inch chunks and cut corn into 2-inch chunks; slice squash. Stir onions, potatoes, corn, squash and sage into stew; cook for 15 more minutes. Season with salt and remaining pepper; serve immediately in wide, shallow bowls.
