Skillet Fajita Chicken Sausage and Rice is made in one skillet and comes together in little time. Fresh bell peppers, onions, chicken sausage, fajita seasoning and rice are combined to create a meal for the entire family!
One pot, a few tasty ingredients and less than 30 minutes is all you need to create an entire meal that your family will love. Skillet Fajita Chicken Sausage and Rice is one of my favorite weeknight meals because it comes together in little time. During the week I don’t like spending a lot of time cooking dinner so I choose recipes where the entire meal cooks in one skillet or pot. Precooked chicken sausage and quick cooking rice makes this dish even easier.
To create this meal, I started with al fresco all natural chicken sausage. I use the roasted garlic flavor but you can use any of the savory flavors for this meal. I also love using the spicy jalapeño or smoked andouille flavors in this dish. Adding Minute Instant White Rice makes this meal even easier. Because the chicken sausage is already precooked and the rice cooks in only five minutes, the entire meal is done in less than 30 minutes. You can also cut the peppers and onions in advance to save time.
