This recipe is based on the French dish "choucroute garnie" (garnished sauerkraut). Don't let the fancy name fool you -- it's simple to make and is the ultimate comfort food.

Cook's Notes

Flavor Tips: Soaking and then simmering the sauerkraut mellows its sharp bite but leaves enough zip to complement the sausages and chicken. For a spicy kick, try andouille sausage instead of kielbasa.

Smart Strategy: Meaty chicken leg quarters are a terrific bargain. Cook them whole or separate them into thighs and drumsticks: On a cutting board, place the leg quarter skin side down and, with a sharp large knife, cut through the joint, along the white fat line.
