"This is an intense food experience, not for the bland palettes of the world: succulent chicken thighs, artichoke hearts, olive, pepperoncini, and sausage-stuffed cherry peppers!"

My 1st Mediterranean dish and I loved it. I think this dish is so versatile that you can use maybe cabbage instead of artichokes, fresh green or red peppers chopped, and 1/2 pound of Italian sausage rolled into small meatballs. I will make again and again. TY
This recipe was awesome. If you like spicy, this is just that. The flavor was great. Not boring at all! even my picky husband liked it.
Very unusual and flavorful. This is definitely a keeper!
I just asked my husband what I should write as the review for this recipe. He said, "Uhhh... YUM! The end." hahahaha! It was delicious. We followed the directions exactly as written, used the ingredients exactly as written, and it was fantastic. We will definitely make this again!
This dish is fabulous, impressive and even won over my mom that says she doesn't like the thigh. I used sweet Italian sausage and skipped the Marjoram (didn't have it, didn't miss it). A wonderful and impressive dish.
Wow wow wow! So flavorful! Made it tonight and it is a new favorite. Only difference for me was that I did not have a dutch oven, so I used my crockpot. After I finished the step of caramelizing the onions and adding the peppers, I poured that into the bottom of the crockpot, placed the browned chicken thighs on that, and then added the stock, artichoke, olives and sausage stuffed peppers. Took about 2 and a half hours on high; would probably take at least 5 on low. Thanks again Chef John!
I am trying to eat healthier without sacrificing flavor and taste. THIS was the way to go! Spicy, flavorful, delicious. Next time I will trim the fat from the thighs a bit and only quarter the artichokes, I cut them way too small. Same with the olives, I used sliced when I should have used whole (I just wasn't paying attention). I seemed to end up with a lot of (yummy) juice and didn't plan for a side dish to soak it up or maybe some nice Artisan bread. Incredible dish, I will be making again and often. Chicken fell off the bone! Thank you, Chef John!
All I can say is WOW! Lots of flavor, full of body and substance. While the dish was cooking, my kids gathered in the kitchen to see where the amazing smell was coming from. I did not use any additional heat other than the cherry peppers and substituted with turkey sausage and fat free broth. Everyone at the table had seconds and thirds. Absolutely a keeper!
