If you’re looking for an easy weeknight meal, look no further! Mike and I got the idea for this Barbecue Chicken Sausage & Peppers dish from a similar sampling we tried at Lowe’s Foods. They were showcasing Boar’s Head Chicken Sausage and used the Buffalo Chicken flavor, but because it is too spicy for me, we went with the ‘uncured bacon’ flavor. Then I decided to add some barbecue sauce to spice it up to my liking! It is quick and delicious.
I started out by cutting up bell peppers into chunks and chopping up the chicken sausage. I would’ve normally cut up an onion too, but I used pre-cut frozen onions which worked just fine. I started sauteeing the peppers and onions on low heat and cooked the sausage separately so it would brown. Once the sausages started getting brown, I added the Bone Suckin’ Sauce seasoning and barbecue sauce to the sausages, let them cook a little bit longer, then transferred the sausage over to the pan with the peppers and onions.
The cool thing about this dish is that the sausages are already pre-cooked, so you’re really just heating it up and giving it some flavor & color! We ate ours with hamburger buns (because we didn’t have any hoagie rolls or hot dog buns), but you could eat it plain or with a normal hoagie roll! With 1 package of Boar’s Head chicken sausage, I would say you could have enough for 2-4 people depending on portion size. We had a lot of sausage and peppers left on the side, but hamburger buns aren’t very big (so we each had 2).
We don’t eat sausage all that often, but when we do, I will definitely look for these chicken sausages again. I’m not the biggest fan of pork, and the ingredients on these Boar’s Head sausages were pretty good from what I recall!
- 1 package Boar's Head chicken sausage
- bell peppers (frozen or fresh)
- onions (frozen or fresh)
- Bone Suckin' Sauce barbecue sauce
- Bone Suckin' Sauce poultry seasoning
- Chop up the peppers and onions (if using fresh) and dice the chicken sausage.
- Saute the peppers and onions over low heat with a little olive oil or butter.
- In a separate pan, start to cook the sausages until they start browning.
- Once sausages are starting to brown, sprinkle on the poultry rub and add barbecue sauce to your liking. I like to add extra so there's some for the veggies!
- Cook the sausages a couple more minutes to soak in all of the flavor, then transfer to the pan with the peppers and onions. Mix it all together.
- Serve and enjoy!
