I have been in a huge dinner rut lately. I am always eating the same foods, and preparing the same meals this month, I feel like.
I decided I needed to switch it up, and eat something a little more healthy and unique, that I know my family will love.
I came across a cajun chicken repine, and put a little twist on it, with extra veggies, chicken sausage, and sweet potatoes.
The result was amazing, and delicious. If you are needing a quick and healthy dinner recipe, this one is calling your name.
You can easily make this with chicken breasts, but I love this recipe with chicken sausage.
what is cajun?
Did you know cajun dishes come from Louisiana. It is a group of people that stick to a certain type of cooking. This usually includes comfort food, with a mix of veggies and shrimp and sausage.
This particular dish does not have any shrimp, but it does have vegetables and chicken sausage.
It also has a little bit of spice and kick to it. I found a Cajun chicken sausage at the store, but really any sausage would work great.
I have also made this using Italian chicken sausage, and apple chicken sausage. Both tasted amazing.
- I love red onion in mine, but my husband likes when I dice up smaller bits of yellow onion to throw in. He doesn’t love the larger red onion pieces as much, but I can’t get enough of them. Either one would work great for this recipe.
what vegetables would be good in this dish?
For this recipe, we love adding in extra veggies, because when it’s all combined and seasoned, it taste absolutely delicious.
Here are a few recommendations:
- yellow squash
- baby red potatoes
- cherry tomatoes
- bell peppers
You could really add any other veggies you love, but these would be delicious additions to what is already included in the recipe.
