One thing I love is kielbasa, sausage or a brat. When I saw there was chicken sausage I didn’t know what to expect. I didn’t think it would be nearly as good as the “real” thing.
Once I finally tried it I was pleasantly surprised! It has a ton of flavor and it is way better for you.
This is the kind I bought:
As you can see on the label it has 65% less fat than regular smoked sausage. I love that it also has cheddar cheese, it gives it so much flavor!
This ended up being the perfect weeknight meal. Especially if you have kids in school!
I used Ore-Ida diced hash browns. This helped me save time because I didn’t have to peel and dice potatoes.
If you want to use fresh potatoes you can do that too.
How to make this Chicken Sausage Skillet:
Making this dish is very easy. The first thing I did was chopped the onion, red pepper, and spinach. That way everything was ready to go when I needed it.
I also diced the sausage links and set them aside.
Heat the skillet and oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 1 minute, stirring occasionally.
Add the frozen potatoes, salt, and pepper. Cover with a lid and cook for 7 minutes, stirring halfway through.
Then add in the chicken sausage, bell pepper, chicken broth, spinach, and paprika.
Cook until the sausage is heated through and the spinach is wilted – about 5 minutes.
It’s a filling meal for not a lot of points!
