Bean and Chicken Sausage Stew

22 Oct

I think I’ve found a way to cook chicken sausage that tastes good – sauté it! I had very low expectations for this recipe. Usually when I look at reviews for recipes from real simple they have mediocre reviews. And the very few I’ve tried have been blah….. This recipe surprised me it came out good! I served with some garlic toast.


Bean and Chicken Sausage Stew
adapted from real simple

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 12-ounce package fully cooked chicken sausage links, sliced
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 can cannellini beans, rinsed
1 14.5-ounce can low-sodium chicken broth
1 14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes
1 bunch kale leaves, torn into 2-inch pieces
kosher salt and black pepper

Heat the oil in a large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the sausage and cook, stirring once, until browned, 2 to 3 minutes.
Stir in the garlic and cook for 2 minutes more.
Add the beans, broth, and tomatoes and their liquid and bring to a boil.
Add the kale and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve with the bread, if using.
