One Skillet Chicken Sausage and Brussel Sprouts

I love Brussel Sprouts!  I was forced to eat them as a child and hated them.  I’m so glad that I have grown to like them, they are so good for you!  I love them roasted in the oven, but typically pan saute them for the sake of time.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil, or avocado oil
  • 1-2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
  • 1 pound chicken sausage, sliced into bite sized pieces (I love these apple and gouda cheese sausages from Costco.)
  • 1 ½ lbs. brussels sprouts, shaved
  • 1 -2 apples, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion (optional)
  • 1/3 cup water
  • juice of 1 fresh lemon
  • lemon slices for garnish

Instructions:

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium–high heat. Add garlic, and sausage. Cook, stirring, until sausage is heated through, browned and crispy, 6-8 minutes.
  2. Remove sausage from skillet, and set aside.
  3. Add remaining oil to the skillet along with remaining ingredients. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until brussels sprouts are browned to your liking, 5 – 8 minutes.
  4. Add sausage back into skillet and stir.
  5. Remove from heat and squeeze with fresh lemon juice, tossing to coat.
  6. Serve immediately.
