Perfect Fall Skillet Meal with Hillshire Farm Chicken Apple Sausage #GourmetCreations

YUM! Don’t you just love when you throw a meal together or concoct your own recipe and it turns out SO well?! This was one of those times! A skillet dinner made with chicken apple sausage, apples, and potatoes. Perfect for fall and SO good!

As soon as I saw the new Gourmet Creations Chicken Apple Sausages from Hillshire Farm, I had an idea about a a yummy fall dinner! The flavors of the sausage sounded so good and something that I figured the kids would eat!

So, I set out to create a new recipe…

Chicken Apple Sausage Skillet Meal



(I made a large quantity so we could have leftovers, if you have a small family or don’t want leftovers, obviously reduce quantities)

– 2 packages Hillshire Farm Gourmet Creations Chicken Apple Sausage, sliced

– 4 medium apples (I used golden delicious because that’s what we had), diced

– 7 small-medium red potatoes, sliced

– 1/2 small sweet onion, chopped

– olive oil

– 1/2 C water

– 1 T brown sugar

– salt & pepper to taste


– Heat large pan on stove or electric skillet on medium high heat.

– Drizzle olive oil in the pan

– Chop onion into small pieces and add to skillet

– Slice potatoes fairly thin (about 1/8″ -1/4″ thick)

1. Add sliced potatoes to skillet. Cover.

2. While potatoes and onion cook, dice apples into small chunks (I left the skin on). Stir potatoes & onions, then add apples, brown sugar & water. Cover.

3. While that cooks, cut sausage into slices. Add to the skillet.

4. Let all ingredients cook together until potatoes and apples are tender. Add salt & pepper to taste.

Serve up & enjoy! I thought it would be really pretty plated with asparagus, but I thought of that too late & we didn’t have any. So, we just had ours with broccoli & carrots. But, it was SO good–love it when even the kids like it! 🙂 And, I love that it was essentially a one-dish meal so there hardly any dishes! A win-win!

    I made this a few weeks ago and it was a huge hit with my family! I’m going to make it for a fellowship dinner at church tomorrow!

      Hi Jeannie,
      I’ve never tried it in a crock pot. I’d worry a bit about a mushiness factor with the potatoes and apples. But you can certainly try it. If you do, please let us know how it goes!
