It’s about time my beloved chicken sausage made it into a dinner recipe! I love chicken sausage – specially, Aidell’s Chicken Apple Sausage (we get the huge pack at Costco), and normally just eat it as a breakfast protein. BUT there have been many many days when I open the fridge or lunch or dinner when I am tired and either don’t see any other protein option, or just don’t want to take time to cook anything. This is when the pre-cooked chicken sausages save my life! So when thinking of a super easy “throw everything in a baking dish and cook it” kind of meal, adding sliced chicken sausage was a no brainer. There are lots of kinds of chicken sausage out there these days so you can really use any flavor you like, but the chicken apple is just my personal favorite!
I had shared this a few times but I used to think that Curry meant SPICY, so I never tried it and was kind of scared of it. Then one day I had some yellow curry something from a thai place and was forever changed. Now Yellow Curry powder is a staple in my pantry! I would use it all the time but unfortunately Matt still isn’t the biggest fan, so I save it for when he is at work! He did try this though and even admitted it was pretty good – which I will take all day. Okay now it’s your turn – make this recipe and tell me just how easy it is!!
Chicken Sausage for the WIN.
