This Italian Chicken Sausage Skillet uses only one pan, is loaded with veggies, and comes together in under 30 minutes!

Woah, two chicken sausage dishes in one week? Yes, and I’ll explain why! First, have you tried Italian Chicken Sausage before? It is so yummy, and such a great alternative to traditional pork Italian sausage (less fat, less calories, score!). Secondly, have you shopped at Costco before? It’s all about buying in bulk so when I made the decision to buy Italian Chicken Sausage…at Costco…… it meant that I came home with A LOT… three pounds to be exact!

When I was wondering what to make with Italian chicken sausage, I started with two batches of this Italian Chicken Sausage pasta. It is SO delicious. The third pound of chicken sausage was used to make this super simple Italian Chicken Sausage skillet.

Italian Chicken Sausage Skillet Ingredients:

  • Italian chicken sausage – cuts into chunks
  • red bell peppers – cut into bite-sized pieces
  • onions – cut into bite sized pieces
  • zucchini – cut into rounds of half-moon shapes
  • Italian dressing

How to make Chicken Sausage skillet:

  • prepare the meat and vegetables: cut the Italian chicken sausage into chunks, then wash and cut the vegetables into bite sized pieces
