Quick Weeknight Roasted Chicken Apple Sausage And Veggies Recipe
I used to always slice and cook chicken apple sausage on the stovetop. I’d slice, spice and then spend another twenty minutes stirring the skillet and making sure everything heated through. You know, while the dog barks outside, the kid is crying and you’re balancing eighty-five other things on your shoulders. Nah, that’s not the way to go.
One day I saw online someone had thrown everything oinone pan and cooked. Score! Roasting was already my favorite way to cook fresh veggies for my family. The flavor always comes out so nicely and we love our veggies often with a bit of crunch. Not so crunchy it’s raw or anything, but not mashed potato soft either.
This is one of those BINGO recipes, those recipes that help parents do all the things. I like to pack my kid’s lunch while I’m waiting for dinner in the oven when I can. Then I really feel like super mom!
Start by gathering your ingredients. I often grab Aidell’s or Aldi’s house brand chicken sausage. They are both nitrate free, and in general, have fewer fillers. We do sometimes still eat other brands, but these are my go-to brands at the moment.
Roughly chop your veggies. They don’t have to be perfect, but if you can slice everything about the same size it cooks a little more evenly. Lay out a little foil (it makes cleanup quicker, but you can do without) and spray a little pan spray on the pan. Then dump your chicken apple sausage and veggies on to the pan.
Toss with the olive oil and spices, and by now the oven should be ready! Slide dinner in the oven, make a side to go with it if you like (I made some tortellini last time) and before you know it this easy roasted chicken apple sausage is done! Here’s the recipe:
