Chicken Sausage with Creamy Polenta

(serves 3-4)

You are rushing home from work–you know your fridge is a desolate wasteland of old milk, a possible apple, and maybe ketchup. What’s for dinner?

It’s nights like these that my local natural market is an absolute godsend.  I pick up a 4 link pack of the Al Fresca Spinach and Feta Chicken Sausage, a large zucchini, some chicken stock, and polenta.  Then within minutes, I have a rich, warm, satisfying meal that is a cinch to make.  Enjoy!

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 large zucchini, cut into bite size pieces (about 1.5 cups)

1 medium onion, thinly sliced

2 teaspoons cider vinegar

1 package Al Fresca Spinach and Feta Chicken Sausage, cut into bite sized pieces

1 teaspoon lemon

3 tablespoons Dijon mustard

3 cloves garlic, pressed

In a large saute pan over high heat, add olive oil, zucchini, onions, and cider vinegar.  Cook, covered for 2 minutes.  Then, add in chicken sausage and garlic and cook an additional 2 minutes, covered.  Finish by stirring in lemon juice and Dijon during final minute of cooking. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve with creamy polenta.

Creamy Polenta

(serves 4-5)

1 tablespoon butter

3 cups chicken stock

3/4 cup ground cornmeal

1/2 cup heavy cream

1/4 cup grated parmesan

salt and freshly ground pepper

In a stock pot over medium heat, bring water and olive oil to a light boil.  Add cornmeal and stir steadily for 4 minutes.  Remove from heat and finish with heavy cream and parmesan.  Season to taste with salt and pepper. Enjoy your quick fix chicken sausage and creamy polenta!
