Chicken Murphy


"Everyone I have prepared this for absolutely loves it! A lovely mix of diced chicken breast, sweet or hot Italian sausage, potatoes, and sliced hot cherry peppers combined with a white wine sauce, then served over a bed of angel hair pasta. The longer its cooked with the hot cherry peppers, the spicier it gets!"

  4. In a medium bowl, combine white wine, vinegar, and water. Pour into sausage mixture, and cook over medium low heat until mixture begins to thicken. Add hot cherry peppers, and cook until dish reaches desired spiciness (the longer you cook it with the peppers, the spicier it gets!).

This recipe was definitely "different". It wasn't saucy at all and was very dry and bland. We added some garlic powder and garlic salt to the meat/potato mixture and that helped some. Also, we m...

good but i wouldn't serve it over pasta that is too many starches but it is great with a nice salad

Thank you, Heather! This dish was absolutely fantastic. After trying it for just my family, I adjusted the recipe for a large party and it went faster than anything else. The only thing I change...

I loved this. I like hot and spicy food so the hot peppers made it.

I found this dish to be just ok. I wanted to serve it to my kids as well as husband, so I made it very mild. No peppers and mild sausage instead of hot. They still didn't like it at all.

great !!!! Brought this to a party. Everyone loved it and asked for the recipe. I just emailed copies of this to my friends and joined this site myself.
