This Sausage and Vegetable Skillet makes the easiest and tastiest dinner! Fresh vegetables are cooked in a skillet with meaty pieces of sausage!
I love a hearty dinner that take less than 30 minutes to whip up! This Sausage and Vegetable Skillet is made with Aidells® Apple Chicken Links and fresh vegetables, such as bell peppers, onions and zucchini. This combination is my favorite and is a perfect way to get in more veggies!
This Sausage and Vegetable Skillet requires a few simple steps that only requires a skillet or frying pan. I personally love using skillets because I love the heat retention and the way it browns the sausage. A skillet is also oven-friendly if you want to warm the skillet!
WHY I LOVE USING AIDELLS® APPLE CHICKEN LINKS
I found Aidells® Apple Chicken Links at my local Safeway. I love shopping at Safeway because they always have everything I need and they make my shopping experience so easy. These Apple Chicken Links can be easily found in the meat section. Some of the reasons why I love using Aidells Sausage is:
- They are made with real ingredients
- Made with high-quality meats and ingredients that are all natural, have no nitrates, and their chicken is raised without added hormones.
- They are convenient and easy to prepare.
- I love all of their flavor combinations. Some other smoked sausage flavors are Artichoke & Garlic, Portobello and Swiss cheese, Spinach and Feta, and so much more!
WHAT TO SERVE WITH THIS SAUSAGE AND VEGETABLE SKILLET?
You can enjoy this recipe just as it is, if you want a low-carb meal, since it is totally satisfying enough. Another low-carb option is cauliflower rice! I like to serve this dish with either rice, quinoa, roasted potatoes or pasta. All are perfect options depending on what you are in the mood for!
If you love extra spice, I recommend adding some red chili flakes or hot sauce.

- Olive oil: you can also use vegetable oil. You want to be sure all of the vegetables get coated.
