What I made for dinner 04/27/2016 - A success story!

Got this recipe from a site I like to stalk quite a bit, Damn Delicious.

One Pot Andoulle Sausage Skillet, modified to One Pot Smoked Sausage and Chicken Skillet, because I wanted to use what we had on hand.  See, Luke had soccer practice 5:30 - 6:30, and I was under the impression that I was taking him.  But since the ex and I have a hard time with communication (I am being very nice here by including myself in that bit), I learned that, in fact, the ex had planned to take him...or the ex's wife, whatever.  Top that with the fact that Claire had soccer pictures at 7:30, or thereabouts.  Anyway, I wanted something quick that either Mike or I could fix and I didn't want either of us to have to stop at the store for ingredients.

Chungah's recipe can be found here.  Nothing at all against her recipe, I just modified to use what we had on hand.  My recipe:

One Pot Smoked Sausage and Chicken Skillet


1 tbsp olive oil
2+ cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, diced
1/2 package smoked sausage (the kind that comes with 2 large links, but you may have used the other link previously)
1 package Tyson's Bagged and Ready Grilled Chicken Breast Strips
2+ cups reduced sodium chicken broth/stock/whatever you may call it
1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
1/2+ cup milk
10 oz elbow pasta
Sal y pimienta (en Espanol!)
1+ cup sharp cheddar and a scattering of parmesan cheese
Cayenne pepper


Heat olive oil in large skillet over medium high heat.  Add garlic, onion, sausage, and chicken.  Cook, stirring frequently, until sausage and chicken are warmed, about 6 - 7 minutes.

Stir in chicken broth, tomatoes, milk and pasta. Season with salt and pepper.  Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce heat.  Simmer until pasta is cooked through, about 14 minutes.  Remove from heat and top with cheese and a healthy amount of cayenne pepper.  Cover until cheese has melted, about 2 - 3 minutes.  SERVE!

Very yum.  I want to try it as the recipe is written, but Claire had demanded that I not change a thing.  So, there you have it.
