My favorite suppers for the weeknight are the ones that cook up fast but taste like they cooked all day, with fully developed seasonings and bursts of flavor in every bite. This recipe is one of those and the primary ingredient plays a huge role in this: Italian style chicken sausage, I’m using Aidells®. Supper is as simple as browning some sausage and onions, adding in the rest of the ingredients, and letting it simmer for fifteen minutes.
Of course, if you get home before everyone else you could totally play this off like it took hours :).
The ingredients you’ll need are: Italian Seasoning, Instant Rice, Kidney Beans, Diced Tomatoes, Chicken Broth, and Aidells® Italian Style Chicken Sausage.
Aidells® sausage packs a wallop of flavor that makes it the perfect backbone of our dish. It’s hand crafted, the old fashioned way, and fully cooked, so all we have to do is brown it and add our other ingredients. If you are cooking for folks with special dietary needs, this is also nitrate free and gluten free. You can find it at Publix in the cold meats case.
Note: Aidells® is on sale from 3/17-3/25 for 2 for $10 at Publix. Great time to stock up and put some in your freezer for quick meals this summer.
Sausage is a perfect ingredient for quick and flavorful suppers.
Begin by slicing your sausages into bite size rounds.
Place that and a chopped onion in a pot with just a tablespoon of oil. Sauté over medium high heat until nice and brown.
Add in chicken broth and stir well, scraping the bottom to get up all those wonderful bits of flavor from the browning process. Add in tomatoes, drained kidney beans, and Italian seasoning. Bring this just to a boil.
Once boiling, reduce heat, add rice, and simmer for ten minutes.
Get ready for a POP of flavor!
