Description

If you’re looking for an easy and nutritious weeknight dinner idea that will come together in a flash and only dirty one dish, this Chicken Sausage Sweet Potato Bake is the perfect recipe! Packed with sweet potatoes, sweet sliced apples and tangy red onion, it’s a dish that will leave you feeling satisfied in a healthy way!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 pound apple chicken sausage (about 5 links)
  • 2 medium apples, sliced thin
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, sliced into chunks
  • 1 red onion, sliced thin
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a large baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Layer sweet potatoes, apples and onions in the dish. Drizzle with 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil. Sprinkle with rosemary, sage, thyme, salt and pepper. Toss to coat.
  3. Place chicken sausage links on top of the vegetables. Drizzle with remaining olive oil and season with additional salt and pepper.
  4. Place in the oven for approximately 50-60 minutes (flipping the chicken sausage and tossing the veggies and apple slices once half-way through cooking), or until chicken sausage is cooked through and sweet potatoes are soft.

Notes

You may use any kind of chicken sausage in this recipe, though I find apple chicken sausage brings out the sweetness of the sliced apples in this dish and seems to taste the best. (I love al fresco apple chicken sausage in this dish.)

Pre-cooked chicken sausage may also be used in this recipe, but I recommend adding the chicken sausage on top of the veggies and apples about halfway through cooking to prevent the chicken sausage from over-cooking and the casing becoming too chewy.

White or yellow potatoes or butternut squash may also be used in place of the sweet potatoes and sliced peaches taste great in place of the apples as well.
