One pan chicken, sausage with Sage and onions & Potatoes

This is a Nigella Lawson recipe - so good! It is a great week night meal with quick prep time and very little clean up.

1 large sweet yellow onion
1/2 cup olive oil (not extra-virgin)
2 teaspoons English mustard (Coleman's or a spicy mustard )
1 tablespoon dried sage
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 lemon
10 Chicken pieces (I used legs, breast & thighs)
12 sausages (I used italian sausages)
2 tablespoons fresh sage leaves, chopped

Peel and cut the onion into eighths, and put into a freezer bag with the oil, mustard, dried sage, a good grinding of pepper, and Worcestershire sauce. Cut lemon in half, squeeze juice into bag, and then cut the halves into eighths and add them. Squsih everything around to mix (the mustard needs help to combine) and then add the chicken pieces. Leave to marinade in the refrigerator overnight, or for up to 2 days.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Allow the chicken to come to room temperature in its marinade. Arrange the chicken pieces in a roasting tin skin side up with the marinade, including all the bits and pieces, and tuck the sausages around them. Sprinkle the fresh sage leaves over the chicken and sausages and then put the the pan (I use a big disposable pan) into the oven to cook for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Turn the sausages over half way through to color them evenly. In the last 40 minutes add potatoes to the pan.

I use Tyler Florence's Roasted Fingerling Potato recipe. I move the chicekn & sausage to one side so there is room for the potaoes. The recipe says to have the oven at 500 when the potatoes go in, I cook them at 425 for 40 minutes.
