Dutch Oven Chicken and Sausage
Dutch Oven Chicken and Sausage is my favorite Dutch oven chicken recipe by far and it is so easy! My brother, Devin, is the Dutch oven MASTER. I’m not kidding, he makes the best Dutch oven food EVER. He was kind enough to share his recipes with us and is allowing us to put them up on the family blog. Thanks Devin!
If you’re new to the idea of Dutch oven cooking, here’s the basics to get you going. For starters you will need:
1 big bag of charcoal briquettes
seasoned cast-iron Dutch oven(s) (12″)
Dutch oven lid-lifter (and some THICK hot pads) to lift the lid off
Spray the charcoals with some lighter fluid, throw in a match and wait until all of the charcoals turn light gray. When ready, spread the coals out flat and place the Dutch oven over the top. It will heat up pretty fast. Now follow the recipe below! You will NOT be disappointed. This Chicken & Sausage recipe has never failed me.

How To Make Dutch Oven Chicken & Sausage:
- 2 Lbs chicken
- 1 Lb pork roast cut into serving sizes (optional)
- 2 pkgs smoked sausage sliced about 1" thick (the kind in horseshoe shaped package)
- 40 oz BBQ sauce big bottle, enough to cover the meat completely.. we like Bull's Eye Original and Texas Longhorn
- Add the chicken (and optional pork) to the hot Dutch oven. Place the lid over the top and check occasionally. When the chicken is white and cooked through (DO NOT OVERCOOK), drain ALL the water from the oven and add the sausage and BBQ sauce (add enough to completely drench the meat) Cook another 10-15 minutes, covered. Remove from heat, serve, and enjoy!
