chicken sausage & veggies!
last night, I opened my fridge & pantry & was having one of those moments where I was like “crap, there is a TON of food in here & it’s all going to go bad if I don’t start using it!” I am NOT the most creative person in the kitchen, so I was super pleased when this came out tasting really flavorful & great! I also love that it is totally customizable to whatever YOU have in YOUR fridge! you could swap out the meat & the veggies for other sources, but use this as just general inspiration!
here’s what I made last night!
-chicken sausage links-chopped red pepper
first, I cooked the quinoa (I feel like this is a DUH thing to say, but I’m that person that reads recipes & I’m like wait.. should I cook the quinoa first? or liiiike….) I actually decided to keep the quinoa separate because I could use it all week in other dishes, as well!
I cooked the chicken sausage on a skillet because it was raining, normally I love throwing it on the grill!
I always prep my veggies in advance! so, I already had a whole onion and a whole red bell pepper chopped up (I highly suggest you get a ninja veggie chopper! it makes meal prepping a BREEZE!)
& then all I did was sauté the onion, pepper, & black olives in a pan with a tiny bit of EVOO. when the chicken sausage was done, I added it to the veggies & kind of let it cook all together & then served that little medley over quinoa!
I added some feta, a TINY BIT of salt, and DONE! it was so flavorful & today for lunch, I had a couple whole wheat tortilla chips with it also!
quick & easy dinner for the whole week! this made enough for me to have at least 4-5 meals worth in the fridge for the lunches & dinners! I will definitely be keeping this one in the weekly meal prep rotation!
let me know what you think!
