  • 1
    In 5-quart Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat. Season chicken with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper. Place chicken in Dutch oven; cook 9 to 11 minutes, turning once, until deep golden brown on both sides. Remove chicken from Dutch oven.
  • 2
    Add kielbasa to Dutch oven; cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until lightly browned. Remove kielbasa. Add onion; cook 5 to 8 minutes, stirring frequently, until onion starts to brown. Add potatoes, sauerkraut, kielbasa, broth, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper to Dutch oven; stir. Place chicken on top of potato and sauerkraut mixture. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 25 to 30 minutes or until juice of chicken is clear when thickest part is cut to bone (at least 165°F) and potatoes are tender. Serve with sour cream.

Expert Tips

  • Sauerkraut can be extremely salty and acidic, which can easily overpower the other ingredients in a dish. Rinsing and draining the sauerkraut helps to mute its flavor just enough to allow it to blend into the dish, rather than taking it over.
  • Kielbasa is a smoked Polish sausage that pairs well with sauerkraut. If you prefer something a little spicier, try andouille sausage or hot beef links.
