Meals like this sausage and rice skillet remind me of home. Growing up my mom made sure a home cooked meal was made for us (a majority of the nights) and that it was a balanced meal. In this recipe I recreated her version of sausage, veggies and rice and think I did pretty darn good. 😉
Chicken Sausage Links: I like to buy a roasted red bell pepper variety or Italian style, but you can purchase any kind you prefer!
Red and Green Bell Peppers: Or you can switch it up and use yellow or orange, too!
Seasonings: Cayenne, Paprika, salt and pepper
Chicken Broth: can also use vegetable broth
How to make Sausage and Rice Skillet:
