Smoked Sausage Skillet Recipe with Veggies - Easy Dinner Idea

Some meals make you happy just by looking at them, don’t they? This is one of those for me. All those veggies just call my name. And then there’s the tasty chicken sausage. And this time it’s sweet & smoky bbq, which screams summer, doesn’t it? This smoked sausage skillet recipe doesn’t require a grill or planning, really, so it’s pretty fantastic on all levels!

Easy Summer Dinner Idea

Smoked Sausage Skillet

I shared that sausage and polenta meal prep recipe a few weeks ago as a tasty make-ahead lunch option. I like buying al fresco chicken sausage for meal prepping, but let’s be honest, I’m not always that organized.

What I am good at, however, is buying things at the market I know will come in handy whenever I need them (i.e. last minute dinner ideas). It’s so easy to throw together a delicious dinner when you have veggies and sausage on hand. You can keep the sausage in your fridge or freezer until you’re ready to use it (though rarely does that last too long).

The options are kind of endless. Besides that sausage and polenta recipe (a perfectly delectable dinner), there’s also a roasted butternut squash pasta recipe and this sausage grain bowl (ideal for breakfast or dinner)!

Ok. But before we get carried away with all the options, let’s just take a minute for this sausage and veggie skillet. We love grilling in the summer, but sometimes it’s too late or it just sounds like too much work.

We love veggie-heavy meals that are filling but on the lighter side in the summer like this one. The sweet & smoky bbq chicken sausage is packed full of flavor and the veggies grill up quickly.

The recipe below has bell peppers, zucchini, and corn. These are all great summer seasonal produce.

As usual, you can sub in/out whatever you want or have on hand! Onions would be great. Mushrooms too. I wouldn’t hesitate throwing in some finely chopped kale. Honestly, whatever makes you happy!

Side Dishes

This dish has you covered with protein and veggies…and flavor, so you don’t need a whole lot. We like to make crispy polenta or even just some rice in the rice cooker! Then we’re all set!
