2. Sheet Pan Chicken Sausage and Harvest Veggies

I love easy dinners that taste amazing and make me feel good. And this is one of those dinners. 

Loaded with winter-friendly produce, like butternut squash and Brussels sprouts, you’ll also include savory chicken apple sausages and salty pancetta. 

Everything is flavored with maple syrup, salt, and fresh herbs, making each bite earthy, hearty, and utterly umami-rich.

3. Apple Chicken Sausage Recipe with Orzo and Broccolini

It’s hard to describe this dish because it doesn’t really fit into any specific theme. So, I’ll just have to go with absolutely scrumptious.

It’s also very textural, so every mouthful is an experience!

Enter your email below & we'll send it straight to your inbox.

It has juicy chicken sausage, tender broccolini, and a chewy orzo. So it’s meaty, a little bitter, and wonderfully buttery.

Better yet, everything is cooked in one pot, so it’s easy, and clean-up is a breeze.

4. Sweet Apple Chicken Sausage Pasta

If you love dishes that are healthy, filling, and full of flavor, you’re in luck – because this dish is all that and more! 

It has elements of sweetness from the sausages and the added chunks of apples. But it’s also entirely savory.

Full of protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, you’ll feel good serving this to your family. And they’ll love the taste too.

5. Glazed Chicken Apple Sausage and Sweet Potato Kabobs

Now that summer’s officially here, it’s time to break out the grill. And in my book, that always means kabobs!

Start with these, and you won’t need any other recipes until fall.

They’re the perfect balance of sweet and savory. Plus, they’re healthy, with tons of veggies and protein, and boy-oh-boy, do they taste like heaven?!

The secret is the glaze.

Yes, all of the ingredients are flavorful in their own right. However, the apricot glaze ties everything together for the perfect bite.

Start your day off right with these chicken apple sausage breakfast burritos!

This is the kind of breakfast that’ll keep you full all day. Plus, it tastes fantastic.

Though, if you want to enjoy these for dinner, I totally get that! They’re big and meaty, after all.

In each bite, you’ll get eggs, sausage, pepper, onion, and herbs. Oh, and it’s super cheesy!

The best part? These babies are make-ahead-freezer-friendly. So whip up a big batch and enjoy them for days to come.  

7. Butternut Squash and Apple Chicken Sausage Rigatoni

Apple chicken sausage and butternut squash are a match made in food heaven.

They’re both savory but have elements of sweetness. That’s why they work together so well. 

And when they’re paired with melty cheese and pasta? Even better!

This dish is creamy, cheesy, and incredibly indulgent. It’s also a breeze to make, so you can enjoy it any night of the week.

Nourish your body and your soul with this delightful breakfast hash. Warm, filling, and always delicious, hash is the breakfast of champs!

This plantain hash is one of my favorites because it’s sweet, savory, and totally satisfying.

10. Butternut, Apple, and Chicken Sausage Hash

Here’s another terrific chicken sausage hash your family will go nuts for.

It’s made with whole ingredients that fuel your body and taste amazing. And those colors are just as appetizing.

I love this hash for the fall vibes. Not only is it sweet and savory, but you’ll taste notes of cinnamon that push it over the edge of yum.

It’s delicious, so make it asap!

11. Chicken Sausage, Apple, and Veggie Skillet

What’s the difference between this and a hash breakfast? Well, not much, to be honest.

They both have some kind of protein and lots of veggies. And both will often feature eggs in some shape or variety. 

No matter what you call it, this chicken sausage, apple, and veggie skillet is one for the books! 

Between the savory links, onion, sweet potatoes, garlic, and apples, it’s definitely hearty.

12. Apple Chicken Sausage Pizza with Goat Cheese, Pecans, and Roasted Tomato Sauce

Artisan pizzas are the G.O.A.T (greatest of all time).

Don’t get me wrong: I’m always down to order a classic pepperoni pizza. But recipes like this really step up the game.

And while it may look and sound elegant, it’s not just about aesthetics. This pizza tastes AMAZING, too. 

It’s got a soft, chewy, and perfectly carb-loaded crust with a fabulous sauce. And it’s loaded with cheese and toppings. Delish!

If you’re looking for an indulgent meal everyone will love, you just found it! This chicken gnocchi is creamy, flavorful, and seriously delicious. 

Trust me, nothing beats a bowl full of chewy Italian potato dumplings and sauce.

And when you pair it with a Parmesan cream sauce, chicken sausage, garlic, and spinach? Hello, fabulous!

Loaded with protein, fiber, minerals, and vitamins, it’s just what you need after a long day.

Better still, you can change the seasonings and the veggies for different flavor profiles.

15. Instant Pot Chicken Sausage Soup

This dish combines two of my favorite things: comfort food and fast food. And no, I don’t mean Mcdonald’s copycat recipes. 

I mean quick food that’s family-friendly and foolproof. And nothing beats the Instant Pot when it comes to quick.

This soup is warm, brothy, filling, and seriously flavorful. In fact, it has that “next-day” full flavor right out of the pot.

16. Chicken Sausage Meal Prep Bowls

I love meal prepping because it’s a terrific way to streamline your week, and there’s no more wondering, “Hey, what’s for dinner?” 

Or lunch, as the case may be.

But no matter when hunger strikes, these meal prep bowls are healthy, filling, and delicious.

The chicken sausage adds protein, while the sweet potatoes add fiber and vitamins.

Throw in some nutrient-dense quinoa, fresh cucumber, and bright pomegranate, and you’ve got one helluva meal.
