1. Creamy Cajun Chicken and Sausage Pasta

Say hello to flavor with this fabulous pasta! And not only is this pasta delicious but it’s done in only one pot. Hello, easy dinner cleanup. 

This delicious dinner features juicy chicken breasts and flavorful sausage sauteed until brown and crispy.

Then, add mushrooms and saute those as well. 

Lastly, you make the cream sauce in the same pan for tons of flavor. The sauce is cheesy, garlicky, and very well-seasoned. It’s amazing. 

This dish is creamy, hearty, bold, and insanely delicious. Everyone will love it!

2. Chicken and Sausage Pasta

Get out your stretchy pants because I have another fantastic pasta recipe for you. This dish is actually very similar to the one above.

This recipe has greens and the flavors focus on salty, creamy garlic. 

There’s no Cajun seasoning here. But that’s okay because now you have two amazing chicken-sausage-pasta recipes. And that makes you a dinner winner!

3. Chicken, Sausage, and Peppers

If you want a filling and fairly low-carb meal, this is the one for you.

This simple and tasty dish is made with chicken, Italian sausage, garlic, onion, and peppers. 

It has a delicate sauce made with roux and white wine. It’s super flavorful and simply scrumptious. 

4. One-Pan Roasted Chicken with Sausage and Potatoes

In my book, there is nothing better than an easy, customizable, filling, and tasty dinner.

That’s why one-pan meals are perfect. And this one will be your next go-to meal. 

This recipe calls for your favorite cuts of chicken, andouille sausage, onion, and small potatoes.

It also has seasonings like lemon, smoked paprika, red pepper flakes, and garlic.

But remember, it’s customizable. Want to switch the andouille for something lighter? No problem! 

Want to add more veggies? Do it! And if you don’t like the seasonings in the recipe, you can change them. 

It’s amazing!

5. Bowtie Pasta with Chicken Sausage and Veggies

Take a little trip to Tuscany without leaving the comfort of your home.

This delicious, healthy, and hearty meal features Italian-inspired flavors you’ll love. 

Each forkful features wonderfully savory ingredients.

It has farfalle pasta, chicken sausage, broccoli, spinach, garlic, onion, parmesan, and sundried tomatoes. It’s O-M-Yummy! 

6. Chicken and Sausage Penne Jambalaya

Call the fire department because this delicious twist on jambalaya turns up the heat. 

Typical jambalaya is kind of like a Cajun paella. It has chicken, sausage, seafood, rice, and veggies, plus many seasonings.

This recipe skips the seafood and switches the rice for pasta. 

But the flavor profile definitely keeps to its Louisiana roots. 

7. Chicken Scarpariello

Some of the best dishes come from the fusion of cultures and this is a prime example.

This Italian-American chicken scarpariello is just delectable. 

This dish features chicken breasts, Italian link sausage, pepperoncini, mushrooms, pepper, and garlic.

It’s braised in white wine, chicken broth, and tomato paste.

It’s meaty, tangy, and spicy. Every bite is balanced and it’s surprisingly light for being so filling. 

Serve it with your favorite veggies, salad, or pasta on the side. 

8. Chicken and Sausage Stew with White Beans and Spinach

I love stew because it’s warm, hearty, and super comforting.

This chicken and sausage stew is slightly lighter than stews you might be used to. But it’s certainly not light on flavor. 

With ingredients like chicken thighs, fire-roasted tomatoes, parmesan, and cannellini beans, you really can’t go wrong. 

9. Slow-Cooker Creole Chicken and Sausage

WARNING: Your tastebuds might explode from pure happiness. This easy dinner is honestly that good.

You start with some Creole classics like chicken, andouille, tomato, onion, garlic, and spicy Creole seasonings.

It’s flavorful and delicious, plus, the slow cooker does all of the hard work. 

However, it’s the extras that take this from average (but still yummy) to extraordinary.

The brown sugar and the almond butter are the weirdest additions, but the most flavorful.

The touch of sweetness and nuttiness perfectly balances the spice from the seasonings.

It adds a richness that is seriously so tasty. Try it and you won’t regret it. 

10. Cajun Chicken Cassoulet

This Cajun chicken cassoulet nods to the traditional French dish and then spices it up!

It’s a one-pot chicken and sausage meal that is big on flavor. Plus, it’s really easy to clean up. 

11. Italian Sausage-Stuffed Baked Chicken Breasts

So, by this point, we all know that chicken and sausage work well together. But they’re an even better combo when the sausage is inside the chicken. 

Add lots of mozzarella and tomato sauce and you’re in business.

This dinner is absolutely divine and very easy to make. Serve it with your favorite pasta. 

12. Savory Chicken and Sausage Stew

I promise that you will enjoy every single drop of this delicious stew.

It features chunks of chicken and smoked sausage, veggies, and rich broth. It’s thick, hearty, and amazing.

13. Classic Chicken and Sausage Gumbo

If you’ve never had gumbo, you won’t want to miss this. It’s an easy version that doesn’t skimp on classic smoky and spicy creole flavors. 

Gumbo is essentially a Cajun stew. It’s thick and full of yummy things.

This one in particular features chicken, smoked sausage, peppers, celery, and onions. 

You can add more veggies or seafood if you like. It’s commonly served with or over rice. 

14. Salsa Chicken with Chorizo

If you love Mexican flavors, you’ll love this chicken dish. It’s spicy, it’s light, and it’s super delicious. 

Every bite is a world of flavor. This dish has well-seasoned chicken, homemade salsa, spicy chorizo, lime, and queso fresco. I’m drooling just thinking about it. 

15. Chicken Bog

Despite its name, this chicken and rice dish will not bog you down. Although, it is filling. And it’s super tasty! 

Chicken bog is a more moist version of chicken pilau or pilaf.

It gets tons of flavor from herbs, seasonings, broth, smoked sausage, and skin-on, bone-in chicken. 

It takes a bit of time to prepare, but the result is worth every second. 

16. Southern-Style Chicken and Rice: Chicken Pilau

If you’ve ever had dirty rice this southern chicken pilau is very similar.

It’s also just as delicious and has fatty sausage, veggies, rice, shredded chicken, and seasonings.

Top with hot sauce for a fantastic kick!

17. Spanish Chicken and Chorizo

This Spanish dish will knock your socks off. It’s absolutely drool-worthy.

It’s made with crispy chicken thighs, Spanish chorizo, and veggies braised in red wine. 

The meat is succulent, the sauce is rich, and the veggies are tender. You can’t get better than that. 

Serve it with your favorite veggies, rice, or pasta.

18. Slow-Cooker Jambalaya with Chicken and Chorizo

Need an easy dinner with little prep work, little clean-up, and lots of flavors? Well, here you go! 

This slow-cooker jambalaya is filled with chicken, chorizo, veggies, and rice. Its flavors are vivid and appetizing. I know you’ll love it. 

19. Basque Chicken and Chorizo: Slow Carb Dinner

Taking inspiration from both French and Spanish cuisines, Basque cooking is uniquely delicious.

This chicken and chorizo dish shines a bright light on Basque recipes. 

It’s so flavorful, featuring Basque chorizo, chicken, artichokes, and roasted peppers.

The best part is that it’s low carb. Although, you can totally serve it with pasta or potatoes if you like.

20. Saucy Spanish Chicken, Chorizo, and Potato Pot

This chicken dish is seriously saucy and utterly fantastic.

It’s similar to the Spanish chicken and chorizo from earlier, but it has some differences. 

This meal is more stew-like than the other one and it has a few more ingredients. Like the other dish, it has mouthwatering meats and bold flavors. 

This one also has potatoes, spinach, and beans, so it’s a whole meal!

21. Red Wine-Braised Chicken with Chorizo and Chickpeas

There’s nothing quite as delicious as the flavors of the Mediterranean.

They balance sweet, savory, spicy, and fresh. This chicken dish does the same. 

You’ll encounter tasty morsels like raisins, chickpeas, chicken, and chorizo in every bite.

You’ll also notice exciting flavors like orange, red wine, paprika, and cayenne. Delicious! 

22. Chicken and Chorizo Paella

Transport yourself to beautiful Spain with this fantastic paella. This is a seafood-free version, so it’s allergen-friendly.

And although it’s missing the seafood, it is spicy, meaty, and divine.

23. Chicken and Chorizo Quesadillas

Shake up your Taco Tuesdays by skipping the tacos and trying this instead. These delicious quesadillas are so flavorful and tempting.

They’re stuffed with cheese, chorizo, shredded chicken, tomatoes, and scallions. They’re quick and easy, so they’re perfect for any meal or a filling snack. 

No one will be able to resist them!
