Chicken is a staple in our house. It is usually easy to cook and there are so many possibilities. Chicken and thighs can become a little mundane after awhile. If your chicken menu has become ho-hum then have no fear. This Chicken Sausage recipe will kick things up notch and add a little spice to your kitchen.
Everything in this recipe can be thrown into one skillet, making it super fast and easy. Skillet meals are a must if you are crazy busy and don’t have time to spend hours in the kitchen trying to create healthy meals for your family. I usually cut the ingredients up for this recipe and throw it into the freezer. Take the frozen chicken and peppers out of the freezer to thaw the evening before. You can throw everything in the skillet when it is time to prepare. It really is that easy!

As you know buying organic chicken is the best option if you can go that route. Finding organic chicken sausages can sometimes prove to be a challenge. They can also make a little bit larger dent in your pocketbook. At the very least purchase a chicken sausage that contains NO NITRATES. The brand that I frequently buy is Aidells.
While Chicken and Apple is the version I tend to go with (or whatever I find at Costco to be honest) a large selection of both organic and non-organic sausages are available. Be sure to read the labels on your packaging as some of the varieties can have added sugar. While you should aim to cut out most processed foods, these sausages are one of the things that we have occasionally because they help create a quick and easy meal.
