I was recently asked what my favorite dinner is when I need it NOW. This is it! I always keep chicken sausages on hand whether they’re in the fridge or the freezer. They are so versatile and can go in many different dishes, but this is my go-to and the best part is that it is easy and healthy!
What you need:
- 1 package of Gilbert’s chicken sausages -I love the bourbon apple flavor.
- Any sort of grain; cous cous, rice, quinoa, etc. – I used Trader Joe’s harvest grain blend.
- Any vegetable of your choosing for roasting – I always keep carrots on hand because they last a few weeks in the fridge.
- Fresh herbs for garnish – I like to use fresh thyme.
How to make this meal:
It’s not much of a recipe, but more so cooking the three things individually and assembling in one bowl, but here’s what I do…
- Prepare carrots or any vegetable on a foil lined baking sheet. Toss with a little olive oil, salt, pepper, and any fresh or dried herb. Roast in the a 425 degree oven for 15-20 minutes until carrots are cooked through.
- While the carrots are roasting in the oven. Make your grain and cook according to package. I often make Cous Cous in chicken broth or add some herb butter to my grains after cooking to add some extra flavor.
- Lastly, slice your chicken sausages and brown in a cast iron skillet. This only takes about 5 minutes so I save this step for last.
- Assemble in a bowl and garnish with your favorite herb!
