Chicken Sausage Stir Fry

I don't think I have shared too many of the things I make for myself repeatedly throughout the work week. I thought I would share one of my favorite go to recipes that I make often.

This is a stir fry that you can make with just about any protein, but I often find chicken or turkey sausages on sale or even marked half off at my grocery store. These are easy to freeze in individual servings as well.

2 chicken sausage links, casings removed
1 cup mushrooms, sliced
1 cup stir fry veggies
1 clove garlic
2 tbs diced onion
1 tbs soy sauce
1 teaspoon chili sauce
2 drops sesame oil


Combine the soy sauce, chili sauce and sesame oil
Cook sausage, onion and garlic together for 2 minutes on medium high
Add in the mushrooms, cook for 5 minutes
Add in the veggies, cook for 4 minutes
Add in the sauce mixture, cook 2 minutes or until liquid is absorbed

Lets grab some ingredients and get frying...

Ingredients for Chicken Sausage Stir Fry
You need chicken sausage, sesame oil, chili sauce, diced onion, soy sauce, garlic, stir fry veggies, and some mushrooms.

First up combine the soy sauce, chili sauce and the sesame oil. If you like your sauce a little sweeter add in some mirin or some honey.

Chop up your garlic and your onions. My onions were pre-chopped from a previous dish.

Remove the chicken from the casings.

sausage, onion, garlic
Fry up the sausage, onion and garlic over medium high for about 2 minutes. Your kitchen will immediately smell awesome with this combo.

mushrooms in
Once the sausage is browned drop in the mushrooms. Cook those for about 5 minutes.

veggies in
Add in the veggies and give everything a stir. Keep stirring until the veggies are cooked, about 5 more minutes.

sauce in
Add in your sauce and you are almost ready to eat.

ready to eat!
Once the liquid is absorbed you can plate it up. Done in no time at all with very little prep.

I probably have this at least once every two weeks and it always changes based on what protein I have around and what veggies I might need to use up. This is a great way to clean out your fridge!
