I’m all about meal prep, and I usually spend my Sunday afternoons building my grocery list, going shopping (which you can read about here), and prepping my meals for the coming week. I usually prep food for my breakfasts, lunches and snacks throughout the week and make dinner fresh every night. Isaac and I both enjoy having something different every night for dinner, and I am all about easy meals (as you can probably tell by now). I use my cast iron skillet for everything, and I love a recipe that has minimal clean up! The beauty of this recipe is that all the cooking is done in the skillet, giving it lots of flavor and making it super easy.
Last week I threw together this quick dinner after a long day of work, and it turned out so good! I’m a week into (sort of) doing the 21 Day Fix, and this was a filling and balanced meal that fit their guidelines. For the next couple of weeks, I’ll add in the 21 Day Fix container labels to my recipes. Let me know if you want me to keep it up in the future!
Skillet Dinner: Chicken Sausage, Kale and Sweet Potatoes
2 raw chicken sausage links (I got mine at the meat counter at Sprouts)
2 medium sweet potatoes, chopped
2 cups chopped kale
2 tsp olive oil
2 tsp paprika
2 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp black pepper
Preheat oven to 400F.
Toss the sweet potatoes in the olive oil, paprika, salt and pepper. Add the raw sausage links and potatoes to a cast iron skillet or oven proof dish. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until sausage is mostly cooked. Flip the sausage halfway through to prevent burning.
Take the skillet out of the oven and slice the sausage. Add the kale and stir everything together. Bake for another 5-10 minutes, or until the sausage is fully cooked and kale is soft.
Remove from oven and enjoy immediately!
