Did you know that peppers are at their growing season peak right now? I was over at my favorite little farm and they had a bin with the most beautiful looking peppers, so I just had to get a bunch! This dish went over big time here.

This is the EASIEST sausage and peppers recipe! It is made in one skillet, is so flavorful, and you can use chicken sausage, pork sausage, or any sausage you like! I like to find ones with minimal added ingredients.

You can get creative with how you serve this dish! I love it served over roasted spaghetti squash or cauliflower rice but I bet it would be great with gluten-free pasta or spiralized veggies as well! This sausage and peppers recipe is Paleo friendly, whole30 compliant, dairy-free, grain-free, and no sugar added!

Directions

  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add garlic and cook for 30 seconds or just until fragrant.
  2. Add sliced bell peppers, onion and poblano pepper to the skillet; let cook until the onion is translucent.
  3. Add sausage to the large skillet with the peppers and onions and cook for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Pour in diced tomatoes, chicken broth, and spices. Mix well.
  5. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and let simmer for 10 minutes.
  6. Taste and adjust spices as desired.
  7. Serve over spaghetti squash, cauliflower rice, or gluten-free pasta!

Recipe Notes

  • If you are using uncooked chicken sausage, remove the casing and cook the chicken sausage and garlic together in a medium skillet over medium-high heat until the sausage is brown on both sides. This should take around 5 minutes, stirring often.

    I made this dish a couple of evenings ago, and it was SO delicious. My family and I loved it!! I took the liberty to add a generous amount of (sliced) Portabella mushrooms into the pan with the peppers & onions (just before the peppers were completely cooked.) I used “Butterball Turkey Kielbasa”, and the flavor was very delicious! I left out the Pablano peppers, but I gave it a small squirt of Sriracha Sauce (which we love.) I served this dish over a bed of Brown Rice, and with a Spinach Salad and Ice Tea on the side. It was a delicious (and easy) meal on a hot & muggy summer evening. It’s a definite keeper!

    My husband and I loved this recipe! I served mine over spaghetti squash but he had his with rice. I am still working on the leftovers but it’s just as good reheated as it was when I made it. Our grocery store was all out of poblanos so we finely diced some jalapeno to add a little extra spice. Turned out GREAT!

    Hi Lexi,

    What is the best method for freezing this? I am about to go through chemo treatment and want to stock the fridge with freezer meals for my family.

    Thank you Debra

    Do you have nutritional facts for this recipe? Particularly, how many carbs?

  11. Veronica says:

    This recipe was really tasty. My husband loved it too. I wish there was some kind of crispy aspect to it because it gets really mushy, but I think I’ll just add less tomatoes next time and maybe sear the sausage differently. I also added shredded cheese which was absolutely phenomenal; probably didn’t make it very healthy though. ; )

    Made this last night and it was delish! I added sliced mushrooms during the simmering because I needed to use them up! I used Honey Habenero chicken sausage from Sam’s Club and it was delicious. The only light problem was the excess liquid , which might be good if wanting a sauce but we didn’t want sauce because we served it alone. Next time will probably cut down the chicken broth and/or drain the tomatoes first. Thanks for the recipe!

    I made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious! My husband and 9 year old twins really liked it. We will definitely be having this again!

  14. Susan says:

    This was delicious. Hubby loved it too which was a true win. I did feel that some slivered almonds or maybe cashew pieces would have been nice and will try it next time I make it. Hubby has always shunned chicken sausage but not anymore. Thank you.

    Quick, easy, and delicious! I don’t know why I waited so long to make this dish! I used sausage from Whole Foods: a blend of Andouille, spicy Italian, and mild Italian- yum.
