Weeknight Dinners Just Got Flavorable!
Cooking is not my favorite thing in the world but as a mom and a wife, it seems to be my goal in life to keep them fed and healthy! Our family in the past year has changed our eating habits a bit…more chicken and fish and not so much red meat. However, you can only cook CHICKEN so many ways (well there is a lot but you get my point) so why not try something different with Chicken, like Chicken burgers or Chicken sausage. I knew exactly what brand I needed to check out…al fresco all natural line of gourmet, flavorful, healthy chicken products, including fully cooked and fresh chicken sausage, chicken meatballs, chicken burgers, and even breakfast chicken sausage.
Cooking dinner on the weeknights are the hardest, so I looked up some recipes off of al fresco all natural recipes and I found so many but these are my favorite!
Sweet Apple Chicken Sausage with Homemade Macaroni and Cheese
- 1 16oz package al fresco Sweet Apple Chicken Sausage
- 1 tsp Canola oil
- 3 oz Sour dough bread, pulsed in a food processor until crumbly
- 1 tsp Butter, melted
- 12oz Elbow macaroni
- 2 cups Extra Sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1/4 cup Egg substitute
- 1 12oz can Evaporate low fat milk
My kids went BONKERS for this recipe- easy peasy for me and it tasted so good. We usually have tuna in our Mac-n-Cheese but this time we used the Chicken Sausage and YUM! My family wants it again next week. So this will be included in our weeknight dinner menus.
Caramelized Onion Chicken Grillers with Onions and Mushrooms
- 1-28oz al fresco Caramelized Onion Chicken Grillers
- 2 cups Vidalia onion, thinly sliced
- 1 cup white mushrooms, thinly sliced
- 3 tbsp vinegar, balsamic
- ½ tsp fresh ground black pepper
- 8 rolls, deli style, low sodium
- Cooking spray, olive oil
This was the first time all of us had a chicken burger and we were all impressed. I loved how moist and flavorable it was compared to a beef burger. This might have changed the way we eat burgers. I served the burgers with fries and salad. Perfect weekday dinner.
I saw so many recipes I want to try, I think the Cuban Beans and Rice with Chipotle Chorizo Chicken Sausage is the next recipe I’m going to try (this is the one I voted for- yum)
