This Low Carb Chicken Sausage and Vegetable Skillet is one of my all-time favorite meals. Healthy, easy, and only dirties one pan!
It is almost embarrassing how many times I have eaten this over the last two weeks. I can't help it. I just love easy skillet meals. Even though I spend a lot of my time cooking, I seem to eat the same things over and over again. Don't even let me get started about my obsession with eggs... I love how simple this Chicken Sausage and Vegetable Skillet recipe is to make and how clean, yet satisfying the ingredients are. The great thing about this recipe is that you can really use any meat and veggies you have on hand. There is also the added bonus of only dirtying one pan. Healthy, satisfying and only one pan? I'll take it!
