Chicken Apple Sausage Sheetpan Dinner
You know those days when dinner rolls around and you don’t know what you want to make for dinner? Or you’ve been running around all evening and need something quick to throw together that everyone will enjoy? That’s where this Sweet Potato, Brussels sprouts and Chicken Sausage Sheetpan Meal comes in. It doesn’t get much easier than this, all made on one pan and cooked together! You can switch it up with the chicken sausage that you prefer as there are so many different flavors!
This also works well as a meal prep option for the week too! If you want something that you can separate into containers and have for a couple lunch or dinners, this is a great option! It reheats easily in the microwave and I’ll enjoy it hot or cold (personal preference though!). If you want to switch up how you enjoy it, I like to top it on greens with a different sauce like hummus or a drizzle of a homemade one like the cashew cilantro sauce below or a Primal Kitchen dressing.
