Season chicken with salt on both sides. 

In a large saute pan over medium heat (with a little vegetable oil) and cook the chicken skin side down until skin is crispy and brown.

Crumble up the sausage and add to the pan.

Place in an oven at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. 

Remove the chicken and flip so that the skin side is up.

Add pepperoncini and garlic to the pan and saute until the garlic becomes translucent.

Squeeze in the juice of both lemons, add chicken stock, and reduce until it reaches a sauce-like consistency.

Remove the chicken, whisk butter into the sauce and add parsley.

Serve over polenta, rice, or pasta and sauce over the top.
