Chicken & Sausage Bake

Now here's a good idea: throw some chicken quarters and some sausage in a spicy mustard
marinade and bake it till it's ready! That's pretty much what this dish is. Here's the recipe for the marinade I used (from Nigella Feasts):

1 large onion, cut into eighths
1/2 cup olive oil
2 teaspoons English mustard
1 tablespoon dried sage
Freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 lemon

I put all the ingredients in a bag, mixed them well, and dropped the chicken and sausage (cut into 2 inch pieces) and marinated it for three hours (Nigella suggests overnight).

Then everything went into a roasting pan and cooked at 425F for 1 hr 15 min. To keep the sausage cooking evenly, I turned them occasionally.

Note: This is a great recipe, but it's maybe not something you want to do on a hot day. To run the oven at 425F for over an hour in the middle of a hot day was not the best idea. It was totally worth it, but it obviously wasn't my brightest moment.
