Scarpariello is “shoemaker” in Italian. Shoemaker’s chicken in not an authentic dish, it’s likely an Italian restaurants invention. Regardless of its origins Its delicious and one of my favorite dishes. Balsamic vinegar is also an option. Delete the cherry peppers and their liquid for 1/2 up of balsamic.
Cut chicken into 14-16 small pieces. Place on a small sheet pan, salt with 3 tablespoons of kosher salt and place in fridge for 4-8 hours. Remove chicken and bring to room temperature.
Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large pot, add the potatoes and some kosher salt, bring to a boil, cook partially covered for 10 minutes. Drain well, cool and cut into 3/4-inch slices. Set aside with the skin on.
Pat chicken dry, pepper both sides and dust with flour. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil to the Dutch oven large enough to fit the potatoes and stick, sauté chicken until well browned, 5-7 minutes per side, (flip and repeat) Remove chicken from pan and set aside.
pour off half the oil in the Dutch oven. Return to burner over medium heat. Cook the sausage on both sides, until browned. Remove sausage from pan, and set aside.
Add the wine to deglaze the pan, scraping the brown bits off the bottom for a minute or two. Add the garlic, bay leaf, rosemary, chicken and sausage and mix. Add the potatoes, white wine cherry peppers & liquid, chicken broth and lemon juice. Mix well and place in oven with top ajar for 45 minutes.
Place whole potatoes in large pot and add water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to boil over medium-high heat; add 1 tablespoon salt, reduce heat to medium, and simmer, stirring once or twice, until potatoes are tender, about 20-25 minutes.
Remove potatoes when a pairing knife inserts easily with no resistance. Let potatoes cool slightly, just enough to handle. At this point you can peel the potatoes if you wish or leave skins on. Using a serrated knife cut the potatoes into fork-size pieces. Place in a large bowl. While the potatoes are still warm, toss with vinegar, salt and pepper.
Cover bowl with plastic wrap and place potatoes in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Mix remains ingredients in a bowl large enough to include potatoes.
Once potatoes have cooled, add to mixture and gently stir.
Refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight. Taste, correct salt and pepper and serve chilled.
