Need a fast meal to throw together after a hectic day? Then I have the perfect dish for you! This skillet has a lot of nutritious veggies and filling protein but takes hardly any time to throw together. The only thing worse after coming home completely spent from work is having to decide what to make for dinner. Especially when meat needs to be thawed. I absolutely hate thawing chicken.
Anyways, chicken grudges aside, this skillet uses chicken sausage! I love using the Open Nature brand because their sausages are usually higher in protein and lower in calories. This Andouille sausage has 120 calories each with 16 grams of protein. The veggies are also common ones that most everyone buys. Red pepper, zucchini and onion are all you need. Substitute as you see fit!
We ate this dinner with french bread. I know, refined carb, but hey- one piece isn’t going to kill you. That’s right, ONE slice, not every day. The dish also has a lot of fiber from all the veggies and we had salad as well. When you want some regular bread (in moderation), pair it up with veggies to make it last longer in your stomach.
It’s not a huge meal, so make sure you have some sides. It’d go well with brown rice, quinoa, or mixed in with penne pasta. Make sure you get enough calories for dinner!
