These days I’m looking for dinners that I can make in very little time and with few ingredients. I usually want to spend no more than 15 minutes prepping dinner. One of my favorite proteins to cook with is chicken sausage – it’s fully seasoned, very flavorful, healthy and easy to cook with! This past week I made a simple saute of chicken sausage with peppers and onions. I served it with an ear of corn and some roasted broccoli.
For the chicken sausage with peppers and onions all I did was saute the onions in a little olive oil, once soft I added the bell peppers. Then I added in the chicken sausages and cooked until heated through.
For the corn on the cob I simply husked the ear of corn, wrapped it in a damp paper towel and microwaved it for 3 minutes. When corn is fresh you don’t need to add a thing, it’s so flavorful!
For the roasted broccoli, I just coated it with cooking spray, salt and pepper and roasted it in a 450 degree oven for about 15-20 minutes.
As you can see – the only prep work was cutting onions, peppers and broccoli and husking the corn! In 20 minutes I had a very nutritious meal that provided protein (chicken sausage) carbs (corn) and fat (olive oil) and lots of vitamins and minerals from all the vegetables (onions, peppers, broccoli and corn!).
