Do you have questions?
Chicken sausage is lower in calories and fat, and it’s equally high in protein. I also prefer the flavor of it to pork sausage.

Chicken Sausage Meal Prep
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 12 oz. chicken sausage sliced
- 2 bell pepper diced
- 8 oz grape tomatoes
- 4 cloves garlic minced
- ½ cup freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese plus extra for serving, if desired
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 - 2 teaspoons red pepper flakes depending on how much heat you want
- 3 cups of cooked rice
- Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add sausage. Cook on each side till it starts to brown, about 1-2 minutes. Then transfer to plate.
- Add 1 more tablespoon of olive oil to the skillet. Add bell pepper and cook for 3 minutes or until they start to soften.
- Add cherry tomatoes to the skillet, moving them around occasionally. After 5 minutes, gently press down on the tomatoes with a spoon or spatula. They could burst open with gentle pressure. If some tomatoes do not break open, continue cooking them until they easily burst when you press down.
- Turn the heat to low. Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Add ¼ cup of water, parmesan cheese, and sausage. Mix till a thick sauce forms. About 5 minutes. Add in red pepper flakes.
- Divide among 4 meal prep containers, serve with rice.
