Searching for faster, better tasting, and easy meal prep makes me feel like Columbus…. only he found America way sooner than I came up with this recipe!
BUT I’m so excited how this recipe turned out because it’s something easy for me and new for the entire family! Yes, my toddler and husband are eating green things; fingers crossed!
There are so many variations you could do with this recipe but I wanted to try something different and add some low sodium chicken sausage and it will be a definite repeat at my casa!
1 Pan Chicken Sausage Meal Prep
(Recipe for 4-6 servings)
Cutting board and large kitchen knife
Foiled baking sheet
Medium mixing bowl
What’s in it:
1 cup shredded carrots
2 cups baby red potatoes
1 small zucchini
1 small yellow squash
1 red pepper
1 yellow pepper
3 cups broccoli heads and florets
16-20 oz. low sodium chicken sausage
1 cup grades Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tbs dried thyme
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/3 cup coconut oil or olive oil
How to make it:
This is literally the best part; it’s so easy!
Slice vegetables into thin chunks and then slice chicken sausage into smaller chunks as well.
I suggest cutting the broccoli into very small pieces to make sure it cooks evenly with the other vegetables.
Once all vegetables are cut, spread them out evenly on a foiled baking sheet (yay! No mess!).
Next start by microwaving coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl for 30 seconds or if you choose olive oil, just place the 1/2 cup in the bowl.
Add all spices to the oil and stir.
This is the most important part!
Make sure to add the oil and spices evenly onto vegetables and sausage.
You can do this by spreading with a brush or mixing with your hands.
Place sheet in a preheated oven at 400 degrees.
Let ingredients bake for 15 minutes, then using large tongs or spoon, flip vegetables and sausage and then continue to bake for 10-20 minutes or until thoroughly cooked.
If you’re looking for the meal to be a little more filling, try topping it off with 1/2 cup of brown rice or quinoa.
