How to make Apple Chicken Sausage and Harvest Vegetable Skillet

  • Cook the sausage. Cook 2-3 minutes on each side or until browned.
  • Saute the vegetables. Add the onion, sweet potato, and brussels sprouts. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder, stirring to saute for 8-10 minutes or until the vegetables are tender and crisp.
  • Add the apple, kale, broth, apple cider vinegar, and thyme.  Allow to simmer for 3-4 minutes or until the broth has absorbed, the apple is soft, and the kale is wilted.
  • Stir in the sausage.  Stir to reheat.
  • Serve. Topped with parsley.

Can you make this recipe with a different kind of sausage?

The apple chicken sausage from Applegate is the best option to keep this recipe whole30, but if you have a local option you prefer that’s sugar free, that will certainly work for this recipe!

Can you make this recipe AIP?

Most sausage isn’t AIP-compliant. This is the bratwurst that I like to use for a nightshade-free sausage, but it’s not AIP-friendly. To make this recipe AIP, you can use ground pork or turkey instead of regular sausage.
